Pleas for a Higher Minimum Wage

Sterling Heights, MI (PRWEB) April 21, 2014

On April 2, President Obama delivered a speech at the University of Michigan in favor of a gradual increase in the state minimum wage to $ 10.10 by 2017. The President urged state legislators not to wait for Congress to adopt a hike in the federal minimum wage. In response to the Presidents ongoing pleas, Connecticut and Maryland lawmakers have passed legislation that will gradually increase each states minimum wage to $ 10.10. President Obama said that he hopes Congress, governors and state legislators will follow Connecticut and Marylands lead to ensure that no American who works full time has to raise a family in poverty, and that every American who works hard has the opportunity to succeed.

Michigan is set to have a ballot proposal in November for an increased minimum wage in line with President Obamas campaigning from $ 7.40 to $ 10.10 per hour.

Since the beginning of the year, other states that have approved minimum wage increases of different amounts are Delaware ($ 8.25), Minnesota ($ 9.50), West Virginia ($ 8.75) and The District of Columbia ($ 11.50). California and New York have increases going into effect later this year. Several other states consider minimum wage adjustments based on inflation as determined by the consumer price index.

Clients concerned about the potential repercussions of an increased labor burden should contact their professional at UHY LLP in Farmington Hills 248 355 1040 or Sterling Heights 586 254 1040.

What Trust Jacker does is that it allows users to leverage and ethically ‘piggy back’ on trusted, trending websites as a way to drive sales almost effortlessly.”

Trust Jacker works by way of a WordPress plug-in that allows users to send traffic to any piece of content they wish from anywhere on the Internet. The exciting part occurs when readers are finished viewing the content piece and are then shown a related offer of the users choice. Comprehensive instruction on the set up and operation of the Trust Jacker software is included for customers free of charge in addition to complimentary bonuses.
