Lackey instructors are worth a living wage

Dear Editor:

Corporations rarely enjoy transparency. Aspen Skiing Co. is no different.

Regardless, Skico’s reply misses the main point: What is the moral justification for paying the least paid of us less than a living wage?

I believe that the family ownership of Skico, which contributes heavily to organizations that promote a living wage, is not cognoscente that Skico pays its least paid instructors $69 for a day’s work on a product they charge $625.

One cannot escape the depravity of that fact. Why not give the least paid a living wage? Or even better, a living wage for all Skico employees.
