Maine's minimum wage to increase to $10 an hour

The struggle to increase minimum pay is still

A HuffPost YouGov poll previous year found that more than half of all Americans thought a minimum wage raise would be good for workers, while only a third thought it would be a bad idea. A statewide increase goes into effect Sunday.

The new figure will be set at €9.55 per hour - an increase of 30c per hour. But one state lawmaker says there may be a way to slow, or even stop the increase in the future. "I'm paying more taxes on that payroll". The minimum wage covers fast-food workers at more than 130 chains operating in NY, including Arby's, Burger King, Chick-fil-A, Dairy Queen, Domino's Pizza, KFC, McDonalds, Panera Bread, Pizza Hut, Starbucks, Subway, Taco Bell and Wendy's.

The liberal-leaning Cleveland think tank estimates another 478,000 workers who earn a little more than minimum wage will likely get a bump in pay because employers will adjust their pay scales to reflect the higher state rate.

Prish Moran feels differently.

However, Goodell said he does sympathize with the working poor and how hard it is to balance a budget on minimum wage. She owns Sweet_ness 7 Cafe on Grant Street in Buffalo.

For fast-food workers outside of New York City, the minimum wage will rise to $12.75 an hour on Dec. 31, 2018, $13.75 an hour on Dec. 31, 2019 and $14.50 an hour on Dec. 31, 2020. They have families, some of them. It will reach $15 an hour on July 1, 2021. More than two dozen states now have "preemption" laws on their books that block localities from implementing their own raises.

However, the minimum wage increases only apply to restaurants that are part of a chain of 30 or more locations nationwide. If pay rates had increased in parallel with those of chief executives, then it should have been £12.74 an hour, which works out to nearly £12,000 more than people are now paid.

Ohio's hourly minimum wage is about to rise again, with the rate going up by 15 cents an hour Monday from $8.15 to $8.30.
