SEASON 1 – EPISODE 1

The Benefits and Consequences of Florida’s New Minimum Wage

Our pilot episode focuses on Florida’s minimum wage change that takes effect today, Sept. 30, 2021. The change takes the minimum wage from $8.65 an hour to $10 an hour and will increase to $15 an hour by 2026. Could raising the minimum wage harm the very people it’s supposed to help? Will businesses see increased employee loyalty? Guests, Al Jones, hiring manager, and Darlene Goddard, HR consultant, will offer their insights into how this change may impact our workforce landscape immediately and in the years to come.
