“It’s not going to be a boring waste of time,” Shashok said. “It’s going to be like the polar opposite of that.”

Posted on January 7, 2013 |
By Associated Press



MONTPELIER (AP) — Vermont’s minimum wage went up 14 cents an hour, effective New Year’s Day, to $8.60 per hour.

That’s according to a state law that says the wage will go up each year by either 5 percent or an amount that matches the Consumer Price Index, whichever is less.

The minimum wage for workers in places like hotels and restaurants, who rely on tips for a significant part of their income, went from $4.10 to $4.17.

Such increases often trigger raises for workers making just above the minimum wage, as well.
