Fair Employment Wage Board
The Fair Employment Wage Board (FEWB) reviews the effectiveness of the living wage ordinance (LCO Chapter 113) to ensure that the community is informed on whether those companies that are being awarded service contracts by the City are adhering to the ordinance. The ordinance calls for covered employers to pay no less than $13.76/hour with health benefits paid by the employer or $15.24/hour without health benefits paid by the employer to covered employees. The FEWB also makes recommendations to the Administration and Lakewood City Council, when appropriate, regarding issues pertaining to the living wage policy.
The FEWB is composed of two representatives from the business community, two representatives from labor organizations, one representative from community groups, one representative from the Mayor's Office and one representative from City Council.
