Minimum Wage

DC Mayor Vetoes Bill Raising Minimum Wage for "Big Box" Retail Workers; Says It's a "Job-Killer," Wants Higher Minimum Wage for More Workers



D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray announced Thursday morning that he has vetoed the controversial Large Retailer Accountability Act.

The bill would have required non-union District retailers with a parent company making more than $1 billion per year and occupying at least 75,000 square feet to pay its employees a minimum of $12.50 per hour.
