Michigan's minimum wage set to rise on New Year's Day

Fast-food workers with the Fight for $15 campaign have rallied in cities around the country for higher minimum wages

The ordinance approved last year by the Miami Beach City Commission set a minimum wage of $10.31 an hour to take effect in 2018, with the wage going up $1 a year to $13.31 on January 1, 2021.

The hourly rate will increase to $10.40 for most workers, with with fast food workers seeing an increase to $11.75.

The organization also says almost 500,000 workers earning slightly more than the minimum wage could also receive boosts in 2018 as employers adjust their pay rates. Block says MI has the highest state minimum wage in the region.

He continued: "In addition to removing some of the lowest paid people out of the USC net, this fourth increase in the minimum wage is an important part of Fine Gael's efforts to ensure that the economic recovery is fair and benefits everyone in society".

Another minimum wage hike will be coming for NY workers Sunday. This is the third increase for fast-food employees in NY since a state wage board recommended the pay raises in 2015. The increase will be phased in over a longer period for workers in the rest of the state.

IPhone Slowing Down? It Might Be Time to Replace Your Battery
The plaintiffs are trying to seek the case for all owners of Apple smartphones older than the iPhone 8 in the US. We know that batteries don't last a lifetime and they have a lifespan after which they need to be replaced.

"We though are concerned about further efforts to increase that and make MI an even greater outlier in this area", says Block. Lawmakers later changed the law to only require employers to make up the difference when tips don't exceed the minimum wage.

The second in a series of statewide minimum wage increases begins today.

Assemblyman Andy Goodell, R-Jamestown, said many economic studies have been done that show there will be a loss of entry-level jobs as the wages in NY state increase.

Minimum wage workers are already making more than that in Emeryville, where the minimum wage is $15.20 - reportedly the highest rate in the country.
