Minimum wage increases; paid family leave starts January 1

MINIMUM WAGE

The minimum wage in Erie and other upstate counties - not including Westchester, Suffolk and Nassau Counties and New York City - increased to $10.40 per hour Sunday.

The wage applies to all Florida workers who are covered by the federal minimum wage, according to the Department of Economic Opportunity. The reality is that in today's low unemployment arena many businesses are paying more than the proposed minimum wage to retain employees and are willing to pay more for those with greater skill sets. At the time the law passed, the country's first minimum wage was $0.25 per hour. A 2006 minimum wage ballot issue made the small increase possible.

On Dec. 31, the minimum wage in New York City will increase to $13, and for workers employed by small businesses with 10 or fewer employees, it will increase to $12. Each year, the wage is to increase with a rate of inflation. The 50-cent increase translates to an extra $1,040 per year.

OnePlus 5T Open Beta builds with Android 8.0 Oreo announced
The Android 8 .0 Oreo comes with a number of features including notification dots and Picture-in-Picture mode. Chinese smartphone brand OnePlus launched the OnePlus 5T - a mid-cycle refresh to OnePlus 5 - on November 16.

Although the raise will help poor working Ohioans, but $8.30 per hour still leaves a full-time worker about $3,000 short of the poverty line for a family of three and this is why there is a push from many workers to pass a state-level $15 per hour minimum wage.

"In many cases, our employers are paying beyond minimum wage", he said.

Beginning New Year's Day, a new family leave policy will take effect, allowing job-protected paid time off for new parents, caretakers, and family members of active military personnel serving overseas. "Additionally, more costs and regulations make NY less competitive with other regions in terms of economic growth".
