Subject: Minimum Wage
A big announcement is expected tomorrow according to Capital Notes. A deal has been struck increasing the minimum wage by $1.25 over two years. There is no cost of living increase attached to the measure.
As you may recall the Governor wanted an increase of $1.00 over two years. The Democrats wanted a cost of living increase attached. The above is the compromise.
This obviously could change overnight but it appears pretty solid.
