Minimum wage bump coming for employees of many Philly contractors

Thumbnail image for philadelphia.jpgLast week, Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter signed this Executive Order, which will require that many city contractors provide a minimum wage of $12/hour beginning January 1, 2015. (Although, the Order will also apply to bids and proposals issued May 20, 2014).

The Executive Order also requires that contractors meet that same minimum wage standard for their first-tier subcontractors.

For more on which employers/employee qualify, read the Executive Order.

(Ordinarily, I’d include those requirements in this post. However, cut-and-paste from the Executive Order flipped me the bird).
