Join the Florida Restaurant & Lodging Association in partnership with the Fort Myers Beach Chamber of Commerce for a discussion on the impact of a $15.00/hour minimum wage with guest speaker, Samantha Padgett, FRLA’s Government Relations General Counsel. Between the proposed constitutional amendment to raise the minimum wage in Florida and the bill filed in the US House to raise the minimum wage everywhere, the potential impact of an increase to the minimum wage should be top of mind for every business. For those with tipped employees, the impact may be particularly devastating because both proposals reduce or eliminate the tip credit. We will also be discussing VISIT FLORIDA’s future, which without funding will directly impact the Florida tourism and hospitality industries.
