Help for the worker

Posted By on Wed, Nov 8, 2006 at 2:40 PM

And here's another election tidbit you might not have heard, courtesy of Acorn:

The Pine Bluff Living Wage Ordinance won big with 69 percent support.  The ordinance will require the city and city contractors to pay employees a minimum of $9.30 per hour with benefits and $10.55 per hour without benefits.

The Chamber and some city officials will soon begin an attempt to dismantle the ordinance.  Pine Bluff is the first municipality in the Delta with a living wage ordinance. The Central Arkansas Library System adopted living wages several years ago.
