Florida Minimum Wage
After the idea died during the 2014 legislative session, a state legislator from Miami has said he’ll try again to have the state’s minimum wage raised to $10.10 an hour.
“Give America a raise!” That’s what President Barak Obama is asking Congress to do. At Tuesday’s State of the Union Address, he urged lawmakers to approve a hike in the minimum wage, upping it to ten dollars and ten cents an hour. “Oh! That was awesome!” said South Florida job seeker Carla Roundtree.
Minimum wage workers have something to be happy about for the New Year.
The new year will ring in a new raise for Florida workers who make minimum wage.
Florida officials announced Monday that Florida’s minimum wage will be rising by 36 cents to $7.67 per hour starting January 1.
The state of Florida will have to increase the state’s minimum wage to $7.31 on June 1 after a judge in Leon County found the state miscalculated the rate.
