CT Reps Vote – July 31, 2006

A minimum wage increase?! Ha. Fat chance flying solo. But, attached to an estate tax relief bill… You got that right faithful reader the bill made it through the doors of YEA. CT had an interesting split on this. The D’s went NEA and the R’s went YEA. Huh.

Expect to see a $2.10 increase over three years starting Jan. 1, 07. Is this a yeah! moment? Here are the details…

Increase in the Federal Minimum Wage and Tip Credit Fairness

The provision increases the current federal minimum wage rate of $5.15 per hour by $2.10 over three years in the following increments: $5.85 an hour effective on January 1, 2007, $6.55 an hour effective on June 1, 2008 and $7.25 an hour effective on June 1, 2009. The provision also provides that tips may be counted towards meeting any future minimum wage increases by employers in those states where state law prohibits tips from being calculated as part of the minimum wage.

Note – This all depends on whether the Senate approves the bill which will be voted on soon. Expect D’s to say NEA and R’s to say YEA. I hate bills attached to other bills.
