Council Approves Living Wage

In a long-awaited vote, City Council has approved the much-debated living wage. The $8/hour minimum wage applies only to businesses contracting with the City. Tim Hulbert of the Chamber of Commerce continues his opposition, even suggesting in an interview with WVIR this evening that it may not be within the City’s power to enact this new law. Also, Council voted in a small raise for themselves, though it doesn’t take effect until the next term.
