BILL:

A.9168-A (Silver)

Support

SUBJECT:

Minimum Wage

 

DATE:

March 3, 2008

 

The Business Council opposes this bill which would increase the state minimum wage in three yearly increments from its current level of $7.15 per hour to $8.25 per hour on January 1, 2011, and then index the minimum wage to the consumer price index after that date.

We have a number of concerns regarding this proposal:

For these reasons, The Business Council respectfully requests that the Assembly not enact this bill.
