As many of you already know, there have been proposals from the legislature that would significantly raise Oregon’s minimum wage.

Today in Workforce and General Government committee Senate Bill 1532 has been scheduled for a public hearing and work session. It would create different zones of a minimum wage increase in Oregon with Portland being the highest at $14.75.

I would highly encourage you to come and testify about how this increase will affect your life or business. If you cannot be there please call or email the committee members and tell them what you think.

Their contact information can be found here by clicking on the individual members names. The committee meeting will take place in Hearing Room B at the capitol starting at 1:00 PM. I hope to see some of you there.

    What manifests as inflationary catalyst? Two undeniable examples: COLA’s (cost of living allowances) and AMWI (arbitrary minimum wage increases) so raising benefits to all public employee (payroll’es) and/or under-enthused 47% populists dancing under an IRS tax free conundrum-spectrum ball .
    Wholly hav’n a cow, mons! Ease up on the private sector paying the freight.
    Cull the insanity now, lockdown the inmates @ the inSalem asylum until they achieve a passing grade in common $ense diplomacy attending ECON 101 – and, signal pasteurization for the Brown cow academics under current tutelage at the Inslee Collage of Udder Bovine Scatology
