Florida Senator Advocates for $15 Minimum Wage
July 24, 2015
State Senator Dwight Bullard has submitted a Senate Bill with the aim of raising Florida’s minimum wage to $15 per hour. The current state minimum wage is $8.05. This is the latest of multiple attempts by Senator Bullard to seek an increase in Florida’s minimum wage. Previous efforts failed to make it to a vote in either the House or Senate. Opposition to the bill is anticipated to be strong with a Republican dominated legislature. Chances of the bill ever passing are slim.
