When employees of the Los Alamos Cooperative Market opened their paystubs Thursday, they found, on average, a $0.54 wage increase in their hourly rates. For a clerk who works 35 hours per week, that ads up to an extra $75 per month, or about $900 per year.

“It’s incredibly important because it keeps moral up and it gives us peace of mind,” Front-end Clerk Cody Ulibarri said.
