The Finance & Personal Committee of the City of Milwaukee has put on hold a proposal to raise its "livable wage" to $10.10 immediately, with an increase to $11 & some change next year.
The discussion in committee
was excellent. A note to Ald. Hamilton, it's not a wise idea to use the
Milwaukee County Board as a barometer of good ideas.
I'll be recording the show on the City Channel tonight to watch it again and post more later. My first question is why hasn't this been discussed in the media. I think the city did a fine job of meeting behind closed doors to deflect input.
Time to contact your alderman and find out what's going on citizens.
