Great news! The Florida #minimumwage is officially now $10 per hour, and will increase by $1 every year up to $15 per hour by 2026. Big win for working folks across our state!

You call this great news? That I n 5 years time the Florida minimum wage will be $15 and still substandard. Clearly you are not a minimum wage worker!

I long was. I even used to live off of $5.15 an hour, which is ridiculous. I haven’t been since I was a teacher (another field that deserves our INVESTMENT). For most of our state, the $15 wage would have decent purchase power

The key word in your response is "was". Also $15 isn't today but years away. I agree any raise in the minimum wage is a step in the right direction. But taking small, slow steps can & should be viewed as kicking the can down the road. Claiming "a great victory" is disingenuous
