Birmingham soon will have one of the highest minimum wages in the South.
The city council voted Tuesday morning to almost immediately implement a minimum wage of $10.10 an hour.
Birmingham’s increase was initially set to happen incrementally, to $8.50 an hour in July 2016 and then to $10.10 a year later. This month, the council passed an ordinance to move the increase up to March 1 before Tuesday’s vote on an even earlier date, Feb. 24.
You have 10 employees, they each are working 30 hours a week and your labor costs just went up 3.85 an hour.
How much does this cost you?
$1155 in new cost each week
$60, 060 in new costs yearly
What could possibly go wrong?
Local businesses and officials have contacted Attorney General Luther Strange and expressed concerns about the impact of the ordinance, which increases the citywide wage floor to $10.10. Businesses that do not comply could face fines and other penalties.
“Because this ordinance does not provide a reasonable time for employers to prepare to comply with the new minimum wage, it could greatly disrupt the Birmingham economy,” Strange said.
This might be important too…
More breathless reporting on something we have known for a almost 2 weeks….
This guy is still complaining about how
Senator Bernie Sanders has a fellow son of Brooklyn making new radio ads on his behalf: Spike Lee.
“Wake up. Wake up, South Carolina!” Mr. Lee begins – nodding to the opening of his 1989 film “Do the Right Thing” – in a 60-second commercial released on Tuesday in the state, where the Democratic presidential primary is on Saturday.
Mr. Lee, who has spent his career making films about race and discrimination, may help Mr. Sanders as he struggles to cut into Hillary Clinton’s support from black voters.
“I know that you know the system is rigged. For too long we have given our vote to corporate puppets,” he says, echoing Mr. Sanders’s crusade against a “rigged economy.”
“Ninety-nine percent of Americans were hurt by the great recession of 2008, and many are still recovering,” Mr. Lee says in the ad. “And that’s why I am officially endorsing my brother Bernie Sanders. Bernie takes no money from corporations. Nada. Which means he is not on the take. And when Bernie gets into the White House, he will do the right thing.”
“How can we be sure?” he says, rattling off Mr. Sanders’s civil rights record: “Bernie was at the March on Washington with Dr. King. He was arrested in Chicago for protesting segregation in public schools. He fought for wealth and education equality throughout his whole career. No flipping, no flopping. Enough talk. Time for action.”
Wake up, dudes…
