Susan Romaine: Hometown Hero
Susan Romaine is Monday’s Hometown Hero.
Susan has been a Hometown Hero before due to her work as a founding member of PORCH.
Now, she is in the spotlight for her efforts with Orange County Living Wage.
The goal of Orange County Living Wage is based on the idea that nobody should have to spend more than 30 percent of their income on rent. In this area, their formula calculates the living wage at about $12.75 an hour.
