In response to record inflation, Taos Ski Valley Inc. (TSV Inc.) will increase employee salaries by an impressive 7.5%. TSV Inc. is one of the largest employers in the county and the increase is a selfless effort to provide its employees with a living wage.

The ski resort uses MIT’s Living Wage Calculator to guide them in setting salaries that match economic conditions. Last year he raised his minimum wage to $15 an hour. With the new increase due to take effect in October, the new minimum wage will be $17.10 an hour.

It’s not just lower-level employees who will see the increase, either. Salaries will increase for all employees, including those who earn significantly more through experience, professional development or special skills.
