Orlando to sign $15-per-hour wage for city workers

Minimum wage to increase by 2022

Orlando City Council members are expected to approve a plan Monday to gradually increase the minimum wage for city workers to $15 per hour. 

The City Council is expected to vote to amend the contract and increase the starting salary from $10.71 per hour to $13 an hour starting Jan. 1, 2020. 

Under the plan, the minimum wage for city workers would then increase to $14 per hour in 2021 and $15 per hour in 2022.

Monday's council meeting is scheduled to begin at 2 p.m.
