Mayor Muriel Bowser’s has gone a step above normal and plans to raise the minimum wage in the nation’s capital to $15 an hour; also includes a wage hike to $7.50 an hour for workers who rely on tips. While this may hurt the small companies, it’s great for the individual workers. Great job Mayor Bowser!!!!
States and cities have been raising minimum wages over the past few years amid pressure from labor. California and New York this month approved laws mandating a statewide $15 minimum.
