DOVER, Del. (AP) — A Democratic proposal to eliminate a provision in state law that allows employers to pay minors and probationary workers less than the minimum wage has cleared a Democrat-led House committee.
The committee voted mostly along party lines Tuesday to send the legislation to the House floor. Proponents of the change say all workers should be paid fairly. Representatives of the business community and restaurant industry questioned the timing of the bill given the ongoing economic fallout of the coronavirus epidemic.
