Gov. Baker signed the ‘grand bargain’ bill into law today. This bill will raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour and institute a paid family leave program.
This bill also creates a permanent sales tax holiday on one weekend each year. It will also eliminate time-and-a-half pay on Sundays and holidays.
The minimum wage will rise gradually until its $15 an hour in 2023.
