The MICHIGAN House and Senate endorse bills that would drastically change previously approved laws on paid sick leave and the state minimum wage: SB 1171 (2018) would slow the increase of the state’s $9.25 minimum wage to $12.05 an hour by 2030 instead of $12 by 2022, while SB 1175 (2018) would exempt employers with fewer than 50 employees from a mandate to provide paid sick time under a law that is scheduled to take effect in March and limit the amount of annual mandatory leave at larger businesses to 40 hours, instead of 72 hours. Both measures move to Gov. Rick Snyder (R), who has not indicated if he will sign them (DETROIT NEWS, ASSOCIATED PRESS).
