2014 Senate Bill 934: Preempt $10.10 minimum wage initiative; hike mandated minimum (Senate Roll Call 277)
facebook  twitter 

Passed 24 to 14 in the Senate on May 15, 2014, to repeal the current state minimum wage law that makes it unlawful to employ a worker for less than $7.40 an hour, and replace it with a new law gradually increasing the mandated minimum to $9.20 an hour, and increasing the minimum amount the employer of a worker who receives tips must pay from $2.65 to $2.93 an hour. (A tipped-worker’s employer must pay the difference between this amount and the regular mandated minimum if tips come up short). These amounts would increase with inflation (with a 4 percent annual cap), and the state would be required to reimburse local governments for any cost increases caused by the mandated wage hikes.
As introduced the bill was seen as a Republican gambit to keep an “initiated law” off the November ballot, to hike the mandated minimums to $10.10 for both tipped and non-tipped employees. It became a bipartisan gambit after negotiations for the higher rate and inflation indexing brought most Democrats on board.
