In 1994, Alternatives Credit Union did its first Living Wage Study to address internal staff concerns about compensation levels. Rather than looking at what competitors paid, or what the statutory minimum wage was, the Credit Union wanted to look at what it took to support a person above the poverty level. It has continued to update this study every two years.

Express Employment Professionals, Kathy Nivison
With a background of 15 years in Human Resources, Kathy Nivison started
up the Ithaca office of Express Employment Professionals to better serve
local employment and recruiting needs. Kathy approached Alternatives for
a business loan, and was impressed with both the loan's low interest
rate, as well as the quick response from Bob Anderson, the business loan
officer at Alternatives.
Kathy took advantage of our "Women and Minority" subsidized loan, which
helps women and minority borrowers who have a minimum of one year in
business and are looking for assistance with continued growth and expansion.
