`(B) the wage provided for under clauses (ii) and (iii) of subparagraph (A) shall be automatically increased for the year involved by a percentage equal to the percentage by which the annual rate of pay for Members of Congress increased for such year as provided for pursuant to the Legislative Reorganization Act of 1946 (2 U.S.C. 31).'.
ABSOLUTELY Brilliant. I think this is fair and reasonable. First it gives immediate relief to working poor with an immediate bump. but that bump is small so that small businesses can adjust, and 2 annual steps to make up for the fact the minimum wage has not been addressed in well over a decade. Then tying it to the hypocracy of congress who routinely vote themselves pay raises.
I would prefer an annual $.25 pay raise with a vote in congress needed to suspend that pay raise for a year, but who knows that may be the endgame.
