While our business has grown a lot since our founding in 1999, UncommonGoods’ commitment to positively impacting the communities we touch has not wavered. If you’ve shopped with UncommonGoods before, you know that being socially conscious is a concept baked right into our company DNA. From founder and CEO Dave Bolotsky meeting with President Obama, to advocating for small businesses, to paying our lowest-paid seasonal workers more than 50% above the federal minimum wage, to advocating for mandated paid family leave in the State of New York, UncommonGoods has been able to successfully champion progressive business practices since from day one. Below are a few choice highlights from our mission in promoting social good.
Our Founder and CEO Dave Bolotsky supports raising the federal minimum wage. So do many business owners across the country. Check out this video from Business for a Fair Minimum Wage to learn why. To show your support, spread the message by sharing this video with the hashtag #RaisetheWage and help “give America a raise.”
