We were pleased to join
Mayor Wheeler and other Portland business leaders last week at the Portland
Means Progress “Early Adopters” Event. LCA is part of a cohort of
progressive businesses participating in the “Portland
Means Progress” initiative. Portland Means Progress is an agreement to
make sure that economic opportunities in our region are inclusive. The
initiative asks employers who sign up to agree to pay employees a minimum of
$15 an hour, and agree to follow one of the three following strategies.

1. Provide work experience opportunities for underrepresented
youth.

2. Purchase goods and services
from local minority owned businesses.

3. Engage in diversity, equity and inclusion training in the workforce.

practices, visit: https://www.pdxmeansprogress.com/
