Speaking of minimum wages, Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody has asked the Florida Supreme Court to review a proposed Constitutional Amendment that would mandate a $15 minimum. The proposed amendment calls for the $8.46 minimum wage to rise to $10 on September 30, 2021 and increase $1 each year thereafter until reaching $15 per hour in 2026. Subsequently, it would rise with inflation. The Florida Supreme Court is being asked whether the proposal meets the single-subject requirement of the state constitution and whether the title and summary accurately convey the question. Elsewhere, New Mexico became the latest to legislate another hike to minimum wages when Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham signed SB137 on April 1 (and, it wasn’t an April Fool’s Day prank)! The law increases the current $7.50 minimum to $9 on January 1, 2020 and changes the tip pool standards at that time as well. One year later, the minimum rises to $10.50 on 1/1/21, then to $11.50 in 2022 and finally it increases to $12 in 2023. Unrelated to wages, the Governor earlier this week also signed HB 55 into law, authorizing New Mexico to join an interstate compact that would allocate their presidential electors to the candidate who wins the popular vote nationally.
