COMMISSIONER RUSSELL BACKS THE FIGHT FOR $15

I’m proud to say I’ve brought the Fight for $15 to the steps of City Hall. While as a city commissioner I am prevented by state law from establishing a minimum wage citywide, I have encouraged fellow city commissioners to consider creating a living wage on contracts we can control. I was successful in getting the Miami International Boat Show to pay a $15 minimum to all employees, and I will be introducing legislation in the next few weeks that establishes the $15 floor as city policy with all our contractors.
