Following other efforts across the country to raise minimum wage above the Federal requirement, a Florida senator is now proposing a $15 minimum wage here in Florida.

Florida already has a statute that mandates a minimum wage higher than the Federal requirement.  Currently, as of January 1, 2015, Florida’s minimum wage is $8.05 for regular employees and $5.03 for tipped employees.
