Michigan Minimum Wage may jump in February

Michigan Minimum Wage Court Case
January 4th, 2023 12:00am | Duration: 4:56
Michigan may be getting another jump in the minimum wage soon. Back in 2018, a group turned in petitions to let voters decide if they wanted to raise the minimum wage to 12 an hour by 2022, and fix the lagging "tipped wage". After the republican legislature prevented voters from weighing in, the petitioners sued, and the Court ruled that the State would have to adopt the higher wage, or change the law before February 19, 2023. That date is almost here, and it looks now like the higher wage may go into effect that day. The new Michigan minimum wage would go to 13.03 for most employees, and to 11.73 for Michigan tipped employees. Mark Brewer is the attorney leading the case.
