Bill Summary: HB 507/SB 1756

The problem:

Florida is one of just four states in the U.S. — and the only state in the South — to enshrine the right to a minimum wage in its constitution, the highest level of state law. However, without enforcement, Florida’s $15 wage under Amendment 2 cannot be fully realized. Research has found that the Attorney General’s Office has largely abandoned its responsibility to enforce Florida’s constitutionally mandated minimum wage. Employers failing to pay the mandated minimum wage is one of many forms of wage theft.
