Lee Mulcahy: Pay a living wage

Lee Mulcahy

It is important for consumers to continue to encourage Vail Resorts to be a more socially responsible member of the community. According to http://www.povertyinamerica.org, Vail Resorts does not pay a “living wage” to both some of its employees and some of its instructors.

As just one example of the inequities clearly impacting the community, although legal, it is morally questionable for Vail Associates to pay $77 for a day’s work to some instructors on a ski school of Breckenridge/Vail/Beaver Creek private lesson, which is simply a service that the company then charges the client $710. Barely over 10 percent to the least paid instructors? Many would say that borders on abuse.
