6.8 Million People Got a Raise Yesterday. Were You One?

Evil HR Lady

Twenty-one states had minimum wage increases go into effect yesterday –and Delaware had one go into effect in October. Overall, an estimated 6.8 million people will see their paychecks increase anywhere from $0.10 an hour (Florida) to $1.50 an hour (New Mexico and Washington). The federal minimum wage stays put at $7.25, but states are free to create their own minimum wage–whichever is higher (federal or state) is the legal lower limit for salaries.

Sklover’s Thoughts for the Work Week

Sklover Working Wisdom

of Camden, Delaware. “I am not a product of my circumstances. I am a product of my decisions.”. – Stephen Covey. In good times and bad, in easy times and difficult, it’s important to keep in mind that so very much of who you are is a product, not primarily of your circumstances, but of your decisions. Circumstances are surely a factor in each of our lives, but background can be overcome by good decisions, day in and day out. Think about it.

The Small Business that Changed the Revolutionary War

Evil HR Lady

Of course you know the story of Washington Crossing the Delaware River, which took place on Christmas Day in 1776. The Hessians, who were across the river, were quite surprised. No one really expects a lot of work to be done on Christmas, especially battles. While this was a turning point, emotionally, for the colonists–they needed a win–I’m not much a military expert.

“Must an employee be paid to sign a non-compete?”

Sklover Working Wisdom

New York, like New Jersey and Delaware, views the continued employment of the employee to satisfy the “consideration requirement.” On the other hand, such states as Pennsylvania and Delaware do not. Interestingly, though, Pennsylvania and Delaware courts do view either (a) a promotion, or (b) any increase in compensation, to be sufficient consideration for a non-compete agreement.
