Minimum Wage

I think that raising the minimum wage to $12.00 an hour is a reasonable wage but it still isn’t enough. If you were to work forty hours a week, you would make $480.00. That doesn’t include taxes. Most people are paying off their house, need money for their kids for school supplies and clothes, groceries, electrical and water bills, and gas for their car. You should have some extra money for other fun things like books or entertainment. But on tipping wages, it is way too much because people can make a ton in tips.

One Fair Wage

One Fair Wage, a group that works with the labor-related Restaurant Opportunities Center of Michigan, has recently gotten approval from the Michigan board of Canvassers to have their proposal (for the minimum wage in michigan to rise to $12 by 2022, and for people who are paid a tipped wage it will reach $12 by 2024) approved to become a petition. They will need 252,523 valid signatures to have it be voted on in the 2018 ballot and face opposition in the form of business groups who say a $12 minimum wage would force businesses to lay off employees.

Michigan OKs $12 minimum...

Michigan OKs $12 minimum wage proposal aimed at 2018 ballot Minimum wage is a highly debated issue that has made headlines all across the nation for as long as most of us can remember. Currently, Michigan’s minimum wage is projected to be at around $9.25/hr and $3.80/ hr for those who receive tips. As you can imagine, this is barely a serviceable wage. With such miniscule hourly wages, its tough for these employees to make a living where they can support themselves and their families.
