Vehicle washing Best Management Practices
- Living Wage: a diversified Central Coast farm pays an average hourly wage of $9-11.25 to field workers, and between $35, 000 and $45, 000 per year to managers. A vineyard in Napa uses three pay levels for all workers, based on skill and responsibility: Tier A : $13.25; Tier B: $11.75 and Tier C: $11/hour.
- Regular Pay Increases: three farms offer automatic cost of living increases of 5% to 10% each year.
- Profit-Sharing: a mid-sized diversified farm provides seasonal and permanent employees with approximately $40, 000 in profit-sharing each year, the equivalent of 25 to 50 cents per hour. Profits are distributed twice per year – during the harvest and at the end of the year – as a means of thanking and incentivizing employees.
- Overtime Pay: one large corporate farm offers overtime after 8, not 10, hours per day, and 48, – not 60, hours per week.
- Bonuses: one corporate farm on the Central Coast provides a bonus of 22 cents per hour worked to everyone remaining through the harvest, amounting to roughly $400 per year.
3. Year-Round Work
Next, farmworkers identified year-round employment as one of the conditions they most value. In addition to a steady income and job security, year-round work enables farmworkers to maintain a stable family life, with benefits for their children and communities.
A permanent workforce is also good for business. With increasing labor shortages, the farmers with year-round employees have access to a steady supply of labor. High retention rates keep recruitment and training costs low, while year-round production increases farm revenue. Delivering high quality products year-round also enables farmers to retain market share among wholesalers who prefer dealing with year-round suppliers.
4. Traditional Benefits
The majority of the farms in the study offer a broad range of traditional benefits, including health insurance, retirement plans, paid time off, and free or subsidized housing.
