Michigan's minimum wage set to rise on New Year's Day

MINIMUM WAGE Michigan's minimum wage set to rise on New Year's Day

"Running a business and keeping people employed in and of itself is challenging, additional costs and mandates from New York State make it even more hard". Everyone who puts in an honest day's work should be able to provide for themselves and their family.

1, 2018, most people who work for a private employer in NY will be eligible for eight weeks of paid family leave.

The state's minimum wage will increase from $8.90 to $9.25.

Governor Cuomo announced Sunday that 2018 will see the beginning of various economic justice programs for the middle class, including minimum wage increases, paid family leave policy, and tax cuts for the middle class.

It's no secret that the minimum wage has not kept up with the rising cost of living. From 2007 to 2014, wages fell for all but the highest wage brackets when adjusted for inflation.[1] Low wages and unfair pay exacerbate inequality and continue the harsh cycle of poverty.

The fast food restaurants required to pay the minimum wage are also defined by the agency.

Additionally, it's important to note that increased wages may lead to a stronger economy.

The wage applies to all Florida workers who are covered by the federal minimum wage, according to the Department of Economic Opportunity. And consumers have more money in their pockets to buy goods and services, boosting demand and creating jobs.

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

However, the minimum wage increases only apply to restaurants that are part of a chain of 30 or more locations nationwide. Lawmakers later changed the law to only require employers to make up the difference when tips don't exceed the minimum wage.
