Senate Seeker: Current House Bill
Every day, the House votes on four bills. A majority is needed to pass a regular bill, and 2/3 is needed to pass an amendment. These are the same Bills as the one the Senate votes on, and they will only pass if both houses agree.

Bill Name: Living Wage Act
Bill Description: A BILL

to increase the minimum wage by 50 cents every six months until 2015.

Whereas, an honest weeks work deserves an honest weeks wages, at a level sufficient to provide at least a basic living standard.

Whereas, the value of the Federal Minimum Wage has been eroded by years of neglect despite rising living costs, which must never be allowed to occur again.

LET IT BE ENACTED THAT:


1 - ANNUAL INCREASES THROUGH 2013
Commencing the 31st December 2008 (or 30 days after the passage of this bill should that be later), the Federal Minimum Wage shall be increased by two dollars to $7.15, and shall be increased by one dollar on that date every year thereafter until 2013, when the minimum wage shall be $12.15.

2 - CPI ADJUSTMENT
Every year thereafter, the Federal Minimum Wage will be adjusted in line with the average rate reported by the Consumer Price Index over the preceding 12 months.
