The Richmond City Council is interested in providing information to and receiving feedback from the business community regarding the impacts of a minimum wage increase.
The Richmond City Council is considering an ordinance that would increase Richmond’s minimum wage. The ordinance would set a minimum wage to $9.00 effective July 1, 2014 (consistent with State law) through December 31, 2014. Richmond’s minimum wage would then increase incrementally to $9.60 from January 1, 2015 through December 31, 2015, $11.52 from January 1, 2016 through December 31, 2016, and $12.30 starting January 1, 2017. Beginning in 2018, Richmond’s minimum wage would increase annually based on the Consumer Price Index (CPI).
Come attend a business outreach meeting to (1) learn more about Richmond’s Minimum Wage Ordinance, (2) provide input on the Ordinance’s language, and (3) share you opinion about the potential impacts of the Ordinance on your business. RSVP here:
