Is a National Minimum Wage Coming in 2019?

Posted By Erin L. Lasch CAE, Wednesday, January 2, 2019

With a new year, comes new legislation – and there are lots of options on the table. One possibility is a push for a national minimum wage of $15/hour, which the new Democratic House could begin to push for as early as January.

 

While that legislation would not likely survive in the Senate, many in the business community think that it could open doors to a compromise of a lower wage, along with other concessions.

 

At the state level, there are strong pushes for a $15/hour minimum wage in New Jersey, Connecticut, and Illinois, along with other states that are controlled by Democrats following the November elections.

 

Many also expect the Department of Labor to begin the process of developing a new overtime standard by spring.

 

It’s hard to say where all of this legislation and policy-making will go this year, but it is safe to say that there will be plenty going on in Washington to keep all business owners concerned.
