Petition for a Living Wage at CapTel, Inc.
CapTel, Inc. currently makes $1.82 for every minute of captioned calls, while captioning assistants make only $0.18/minute.
Less than 10% of the capital we create for this company is coming back to its actual workers, and we are not receiving a living wage.
An increase to $0.25/minute for captioning assistants would be all required of CapTel, Inc. to pay its workers $15 an hour.
We, the undersigned employees of CapTel, Inc. demand that our wages and the starting wage be immediately increased to $15 an hour.
