ON : Minimum wage increase to $ 14/hr - Questions regarding current Senior employees
What about the hourly wage employees who are already on $ 14/hr , will their wage also automatically increase by the difference of $ 2.40/hr ? And become $ 16.40/hr.
Say someone who has just joined a retail store or fast food joint or warehouse and is working on minimum wage $ 11.60/hr . And there are other employees who started working there, 2-3 yrs back at minimum wage but got a few raises in the last 2-3 years and now are at $ 14/hr.
Come Jan 1, 2018 , both the new recently joined and the old 2-3 yr old employees will both be at $ 14/hr if the older employees don't get a corresponding raise ( difference raise ). How is that fair to the older employees ? The $ 11.60/hr guy who just joined gets $ 14/hr within months, but the $ 14/hr guy remains at $ 14/hr ??? Is that how it will be played out ?
