Mike Ramone on Jobs

 

 


Raise minimum wage, add training wage, youth wage

Legislative Summary:HB483: This Act creates a training minimum wage and a youth wage that is not more than $0.50 less than the minimum wage rate of $8.75.

The Capital Daily summary:  A spirited debate on raising the wage floor followed, with Democrats arguing it would help lift people out of poverty while Republicans claimed it would cause prices to rise and lead to layoffs. Democrats and Republicans reached a compromise, increasing the minimum wage to $9.25 and instituting a training wage. "We just gave an extra dollar an hour to these working-class people. That's a hundred pennies," the Democratic House Majority Leader said.

Legislative Outcome: Passed Senate 15-5-1 on Jul/1/18; State Rep. Ramone voted YES; Passed House 32-7-2 on Jul/1/18; Signed by Governor John Carney on Jul/1/18
