Michigan Minimum Wage Could Increase in Michigan
The minimum wage has been issue all around the country and now Michigan is going to get in on the act. The minimum wage could be increased over the next few years as this week the Michigan Court of Appeals rejected a lawsuit by a group backed by the restaurant industry. Since the lawsuit was rejected it then triggered them to order a minimum wage initiative on the statewide ballot in November.
According to the Detroit Free Press, the One Fair Wage proposal would gradually raise the rate of Michigan's minimum wage to $12 an hour. Also if this proposal is passed it would also increase the pay minimum for workers who make tips. Michigan's current minimum wage is $9.25 and it would increase to $10 in 2019, $10.65 in 2020, $11.35 in 2021 and $12 in 2022.
