The U.S. Supreme Court recently struck down a challenge by business groups in the Seattle area to the city’s law that will raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour. This also affirms a lower court ruling, which also supported the law.
Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman, announced in December 2013 that an agreement has been reached to reinstate 25 employees before the end of the holiday season. The employment of the workers ended suddenly, earlier in the month, following wage dispute with store management.
“Because of this agreement, 25 workers will be back to work in time for the holidays,” said Attorney General Schneiderman.
