Hearing an important minimum wage bill in the Senate labor committee.
SB 107: Increases the minimum wage to $12.25 per hour in 2018 and $15 per hour in 2019. Repeals language allowing the hourly wage of a tipped employee to be increased on account of tips. Requires the department of labor and industrial relations to annually calculate the adjusted minimum wage rate to the nearest five cents using the Honolulu region CPI-W. Testify on this measure.
