Those seeking foreclosure assistance or wondering what help there is to them in foreclosure
The Florida House just passed a bill that overrides local living wage and sick time ordinances, meaning that South Florida employees could take a 40 percent cut in pay.
Miami-Dade and Broward counties both have local laws that require companies who work with the county to pay a higher living wage than the statewide minimum of $7.79.
For 2012-2013, the living wage in Miami-Dade was set at $12.06 with a health plan and $13.82 without.
Rep. Jason Brodeur (R-Sanford) supports preempting local living wages, arguing that “Businesses … need to know they have consistency and stability in the environment in order to drive economic growth,” as reported by the Orlando Sentinel.

    thanks to misers like Brodeur, the food stamp line just grew a bit longer in south florida and the quality of work for the county will go down.
