See How a $15/hr Starting Wage is Helping an Eastvale Family Cafe

Eastvale Coffee Barista

Amazon’s minimum wage supports local business

Hope was welcome and well-deserved for Davila and her family. They launched EastBrew Cafe and Bakery in January 2020 – weeks before COVID-19 changed everything.

Being in a region where customers can afford to dine out, this family-owned cafe has defied the odds with the help of the Amazon fulfillment center full of supporting customers. Amazon has about 3,000 employees in the area earning at least $15/hr, which is more than double the U.S. minimum wage.
