A brief description of how the institution ensures that its lowest-paid workers (including contractors, if applicable) receive sustainable compensation:

We do a survey each year of wages for particular jobs and check the cost of living wage for Franklin County as well as Nashville and Chattanooga. At that point we determine if we need to adjust our hourly rates for non-exempt. Which we adjusted drastically last year by raising the entry level wage to 9.15/hour from 8.19. We do not ensure anything but offer employment with these wages and the employee is free to accept or not.


The most recent year total compensation for the institution’s lowest-paid workers (including contractors, if applicable) was evaluated to ensure that it was sustainable:
2,012
