Urge Your Legislators to Oppose a Minimum Wage Hike
Urge Your Elected Officials to Oppose a Minimum Wage Increase
Leading into the second half of the legislative session, Governor Shumlin and legislative leadership are pushing to raise the minimum wage from $8.73/hour to $10.10/hour. Vermont currently has the third highest minimum wage. If this issue will impact your business you need to contact your legislator(s) today.
With a push for this so late in the biennium, we are concerned about legislator’s ability to fully analyze the risks versus the benefits to make a responsible decision with a small window of time. This will potentially impact small employers, low-wage employment, and entry level employment.
This minimum wage proposal overturns a 2007 compromise that links minimum wage annual increases to inflation; there is an exception that in no year can it increase by more than five percent (5%).
