“Our employees are our greatest asset,” said Michael King, president and CEO. “They are the heart of our organization, providing care and compassion to the older adults we serve. We must continue to help fight poverty in our community by helping our employees make a sustainable living wage.”  

According to Emy Giacalone, senior vice president of human resources, “Jewish Senior Life has a long-standing commitment to investing in our employees, and paying them fairly and competitively. Currently, approximately 75% of our staff make over $15 per hour.”
