Minimum Wage Eligibility

Ms. Donoghue moved that the bill be amended by adding the following section:-

Section XX. Section 1 of chapter 151 of the General Laws, as appearing in the 2012 Official Edition, is hereby amended by inserting, after the first paragraph, the following paragraph:-

“In the case of any business or organization employing fewer than fifty persons, a wage not less than the minimum wage, as defined by this chapter, shall be paid to employees who are at least 20 years of age or who are younger than 20 years of age and have worked not fewer than 90 calendar days with said employer. Those employees who do not meet these requirements shall receive a wage not less than the greater amount of either $8.00 per hour or the effective federal minimum wage rate plus $0.10.”
