Experts predicted employers and lawmakers were going to finally start paying more attention to what many began to recognize as a hugely important benefit for working parents.After all, according to a 2016 report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, more than 100 million employees still aren’t offered paid family leave at their jobs.Tangentially related to the above discussed legislation, and also discussed in the February blog post, is that Ballot Initiative 1433 would gradually raise Washington State minimum wage to .50, and starting in January 2018, require employers to provide employees with an hour of paid sick leave for every forty hours worked.Assuming that an employee worked 40 hours per week for 48 weeks a year, this would amount to six days of paid sick leave a year.Only time will tell what the effects of Initiative 1433 will be on the labor market in Washington State.However, in era of outsourcing and automation, with driverless cars purportedly on the horizon, it appears more crucial than ever that the labor force in Washington State develop medium- and/or high-skills if they wish to be employed and/or economically viable.Thereafter, the .50 minimum wage is increased or decreased based on the Consumer Price Index (annual rate of inflation or deflation).The gradual implementation of Initiative 1433 gives employers of all sizes the opportunity to plan and prepare for the increased cost of doing business.
