Nov 27 - FL state senator files bill to allow employers to pay sub-minimum ‘training wage’
 

 
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – State Senator Jeff Brandes is looking to make a change to Florida’s minimum wage laws that would allow employers to offer a “training wage” which would be below the state’s current minimum wage.

Brandes, a Republican from Pinellas County, filed Senate Joint Resolution 382, which would amend the state’s constitution — specifically, Section 24 of Article X, the section establishing the state’s minimum wage.

SJR 382, which could be considered during the 2022 legislative session, calls for the state legislature to establish a “Minimum Training Wage rate less than the Minimum Wage rate.”

Under the proposal, employers would be able to offer the training wage to any employee for the first six months of their employment.

SJR 382 does not specify what the training wage would be but gives a look at how it would be calculated.

“The Minimum Training Wage rate must be based on a federal temporary training wage rate, if any, or on the findings of a study commissioned every three years by the state legislature to determine a sufficient Minimum Training Wage rate,” the proposed amendment reads.

Read the full text of SJR 382 below:

Because this is a constitutional amendment, the legislature would have to vote on the proposal which would then go onto the ballot where 60% of Florida voters would have to be in favor of the measure for it to take effect.

Brandes made a similar attempt in the 2021 legislative session where he proposed a “reduced minimum wage rate” for prisoners in the state correctional system, workers convicted of a felony, workers under 21 and other “hard-to-hire” employees.

The senator’s attempts at offering a pay rate below the minimum wage come after Floridians passed Amendment 2 in the 2020 election, which raised the state’s minimum wage to $10 per hour in September, then raises it a dollar more each year until it reaches $15 per hour in 2026.

According to estimates from the Florida Pay Institute — which calls itself “an independent, non-partisan and non-profit organization dedicated to advancing policies and budgets that improve the economic mobility and quality of life for all Floridians” — 2.5 million workers in Florida will benefit from the $15 per hour minimum wage.

On the Florida Foodie podcast, f*ght for $15 advocate Christian Cardona said that even the $15 per hour minimum may still not be enough for workers.

“The thing about the f*ght for $15 is that it started almost 10 years ago, back in 2012. Work workers were asking for $15 (per hour) then and it has been a long time since then and we still don’t have it,” Cardona said. “Back in 2012, $15 (per hour) might have been enough then — it’s probably not enough now and in five years (when Florida’s minimum wage reaches $15 per hour), it will be even less so.”

He' s right. Inflation is down, production is up, supply chains are great, there is no pandemic, products are cheaper, and wages have been WAY too high..

This is what people vote for by continually voting against their interests, so give the people what they want.

I have absolutely no sympathy for any Floridians if this sh*t passes there, nor elsewhere.

LOL if people actually knew how dirty these Republican's are, they wouldn't vote for them. Imagine voting to raise the minimum wage in your sate just to have a weazly politician try to have a work around that lets these greedy companies go around it.

How much you wanna bet the companies will find a work around to not even pay the new minimum wage.

So basically they are wanting to implement temp agency rules into state law and cut out the agencies altogether. Unfortunately, some people can only get jobs through temp agencies for various reasons and they know this. These sh*tty places were put in place so a job that pays $15/hr allow the agency to only pay you $11/hr, the company saves money and the temp service keeps the rest. In this case I will a*sume the state will keep the excess of the original wage for 6 months. I'm sure it won't be used for anything other than to line the pockets of the already rich.

Think bigger. If this advances, it would hit all businesses that have a designated training period. It's a way to keep employer costs low so you don't waste as much money on new hires that don't work out.

He comes from money and his family owned businesses. So sh*t like this is just par for the course for him.
