What is the Living Wage Certification Program

Think Local First DC was awarded a grant by the Department of Small and Local Business Development to establish a Living Wage Certification Program within the Department. The Living Wage Certification Program will certify employers that meet the requirements of the program established below.

  4. Possesses all current business licenses and clean hands certificate[2].
