Local Habitat boosts minimum wage

September 19, 2019 - Habitat for Humanity of Pinellas and West Pasco Counties has increased its minimum wage to $13.50 an hour and plans to increase it again to $15 an hour in 2020. Local Habitat leaders see the wage hike "as an opportunity to lead the way for nonprofits to do our part to ensure our talent is making a livable wage," Mike Sutton, president and CEO, said in a news release. Florida’s minimum wage is currently set at $8.46 an hour, and one in six families in the state spend more than half of their income on housing. "With these wage increases we aim to support our employees, who work tirelessly to create affordable housing solutions for others, with their own stability," Sutton said.
