2003 Florida Law Prohibits Local Mmunicipality From Establishing A Minimum-Wage Law

The City of Miami Beach lost the first round of a battle to raise the minimum living wage to $13.31 an hour. Miami-Dade County Circuit Judge Peter R. Lopez ruled the ordinance was not valid under the 2003 Florida law, which prohibits any local municipality from establishing a minimum-wage law. here
Mayor Philip Levine vows he will fight back, possibly with a constitutional amendment to get the law through.
