Maine's minimum wage to increase to $10 an hour

Florida's minimum wage set to increase on Jan. 1
1, 2018, most people who work for a private employer in NY will be eligible for eight weeks of paid family leave.
The federal minimum wage has not increased since 2009 and the purchasing power of the minimum wage has steadily declined for decades.
The hourly wage will then increase again to $11 in 2019 and $12 in 2020. The increases were spread out over a few years to give businesses time to adjust. Cuomo estimates more than 2.3 million people will benefit from the wage increase. Voters have approved minimum wage referendums even in more conservative states like Nebraska and South Dakota.
The new minimum wage would result in an Irish worker taking home a gross income of €1,613.95 per month, and €1,521.57 after tax. It will reach $15 an hour on July 1, 2021.
The fast food restaurants required to pay the minimum wage are also defined by the agency.
All that success by activists has prompted a backlash from Republican state lawmakers seeking to rein in minimum wage hikes. If you throw more money at them, they don't necessarily do more work. More than two dozen states now have "preemption" laws on their books that block localities from implementing their own raises.
"I'm very concerned raising the cost of entry-level jobs will highlight the differences in cost between doing business in NY versus other states", Goodell said on Friday. The disparity in pay is so great that those at the bottom of the wage ladder could be earning an additional £5.24 per hour if their pay had risen at the same rate over the last 20 years as the pay of FTSE 100 chief executives.
