Make your plans now to attend the 2019 CFA Day Forum in Washington DC on May 22. One of the key issues on our agenda will be the Raise The Wage Act, a proposal by Virginia Representative Bobby Scott, Chairman of the House Committee on Education and Labor. The Raise The Wage Act (H.R. 582) increases the federal minimum wage from $7.25 to $15 an hour by 2024, indexes it to median wage growth every year and eliminates the tip credit. With 204 co-sponsors in the House of Representatives, this bill is a top priority for House leadership, but one that we must work hard to oppose. Do you want to pay your entry-level workers $15 an hour? Come to the 2019 CFA Day Forum in Washington, D.C., May 22, and help explain to Congress why this bill will HURT rather than HELP you and your employees. Registration for the event is $95, and attendees should make their own lodging plans and reservations. Click here to register now and access a list of hotels and lodging near the venue.
