Florida minimum wage set to rise Monday

Florida minimum wage set to rise Monday

A group is circulating petitions to put raising Michigan's minimum wage to $12 an hour by 2022 on the November ballot.

The new figure will be set at €9.55 per hour - an increase of 30c per hour.

1, 2018, most people who work for a private employer in NY will be eligible for eight weeks of paid family leave. Fast-food employees in the rest of the state will get a $1 raise, from $10.75 to $11.75 an hour. Each year, the wage is to increase with a rate of inflation.

Another minimum wage hike will be coming for NY workers Sunday. Businesses have stated that if they pay less than $15 an hour, they have retention issues.

However, Goodell said he does sympathize with the working poor and how hard it is to balance a budget on minimum wage.

"The paid family leave requirements of New York State have taken money out of employee paychecks and have created scheduling challenges for employers in a time when finding employees is hard".

However, the minimum wage increases only apply to restaurants that are part of a chain of 30 or more locations nationwide.

The minimum wage rule also applies to local chains that operate at least 30 locations in NY.

The second in a series of statewide minimum wage increases begins today.

"New York has made major strides in the fight for economic equality, social justice, and workers' rights, and with the rollout of this historic minimum wage increase and the strongest paid family leave program in the country, we continue to protect the wallets of middle class New Yorkers", says Cuomo.

Starting Monday, small companies - those with 25 or fewer employees - will have to pay workers at least $10.50 an hour, up from $10.
