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.
