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.
