Minimum wage issue pits states against one another

Next week, Florida Gov. Rick Scott will travel to California to try to convince business leaders there to move their operations to his state to escape a planned minimum wage increase to $15. A senior living provider in Scott’s state, however, believes that a nationwide minimum wage of $15 is “inevitable.”

Lynne S. Katzmann, Ph.D., speaks at the 2015 NIC Fall Conference.

Juniper makes a case for a living wage

At a time when many senior living providers are taking a stand against proposed minimum wage increases across the country, Juniper Communities is taking the opposite approach. April 1, the company implemented its new 15X20 program, which has the goal of increasing hourly minimum wages in its communities to $15 by the year 2020.
