Richmond, KY [June 8, 2021] – Health Help, Inc. d/b/a White House Clinics is pleased to announce that it has raised its minimum wage from $11.75 an hour to $15.04. White House Clinics CEO Stephanie Moore says, “Our employees have shown incredible commitment to providing accessible and high-quality health care throughout the pandemic. With the adoption of our new wage scale, we are making a commitment to our employees that will have a significant positive impact on their livelihoods.” Effective June 1, the staff wage scale increased by 28%. White House Clinics intends that the higher wages will also help attract new employees in today’s competitive job market.
The current federal minimum wage is $7.50 an hour. Recent legislation, which stalled in Congress, proposed that the minimum wage increase to $15 by 2025. When asked why White House Clinics has adopted the increase now, Moore says, “At White House Clinics, we hope our employees see their work here as a career, not just a job. By increasing our entire staff wage scale, not just our minimum wage, we want to encourage career growth, while also ensuring that all employees can support their families and have a comfortable standard of living.”
