Rebecca Weis sits down for a candid discussion with Kirt Jacobs.
I have more than one client who contacts me once every couple of weeks to ask, “where are we with the proposed federal $15 minimum wage?” And I think I can safely say that while in 2019, a majority of Americans surveyed were supportive of such an increase to the current $7.25 an hour, the political logistics of achieving this feat continue to be a challenge. Typically, the only thing I can tell clients is that there is a lot of discussion, but as of today it hasn’t yet happened, and it may not happen, but if it does you will be the first you know.
