Inclement Weather Pay for All or Employees Earning Slightly Above, At, or Below Livable Wages
When employees cannot work due to no fault of their own, such as during inclement weather (snow days, etc.), they are traditionally not paid for those days and suffer loss of a significant portion of their income in some instances. Accordingly, many employees suffer financial hardship, or must forego or delay paying certain bills for these days missed; and this simply shouldn’t be so...
Companies should pay their employees, or at least those earning slightly above, at, or below livable wages, for work missed due to inclement weather, as the duty of an employer is to sustain those who help to sustain business.
