City to Hold Living Wage Hearing

Mayor Blake Caravati said at last night’s City Council meeting that he intends to hold a living wage hearing on September 17th. City Council is attempting to reconcile protesters’ demands for an $8 minimum wage with the Chamber of Commerce’s opposition. The hearings will be regarding the requirement that all city contractors pay their employees a living wage. WINA has the story.

  • City Council is attempting to protester’s demands for an $8 minimum wage with the Chamber of Commerce’s opposition.

    What? That sentence is missing a rather important verb.

    Anyway, I for one am glad that this is actually going somewhere. I’m surprised that after the Chamber of Commerce’s earllier actions, Caravati is pushing the issue further.

    I’ll be amazed if we actually do get the living wage, but i think it’s worth fighting for.
