I own a restaurant in Florida and I was reading that cities across the country are raising the minimum wage to $15. Is there any possibility the minimum wage in FL will go up to $15?
The current minimum wage in FL is $8.05 per hour. Florida is one of 15 states that indexes its minimum wage rates to rise automatically with the cost of living each year. A bill has been filed in the Florida state legislature to increase the minimum wage to $15 per hour. While it is unlikely to pass in the Republican-controlled Florida state legislature, minimum wage now seems to be a very hot topic nationwide. In New York City, minimum wage is increasing to $15 just for fast food workers. Please feel free to call me directly to discuss how these issues may affect your company’s situation directly.
