As a number of legislative sessions around the country grind to a halt this weekend, it appears that Delaware legislators were unable to agree on legislation to increase the state minimum wage primarily out of concern that the proposed increase for state workers would cost the First State millions of dollars. If the increase is too much for state coffers, have they ever thought of the impact an increase would have on private employers? It’s a little different story up in New Hampshire where a house and senate conference committee has agreed on legislation to raise the state minimum to $12 per hour by 2022. Notwithstanding the legislative agreement, speculation is that republican Governor Chris Sununu, who has stated his opposition to a minimum wage hike, will veto the mandate.
