The Tamarac Commission
approves the wage ordinance
worthy for employees
from the city
The Mayor and the Tamarac City Commission passed a living wage ordinance at the October 28 City Commission meeting that will guarantee the salaries of City employees that would allow them to live in the area.
"South Florida is an expensive place to live and our staff works tirelessly to help the community," said Deputy Mayor Marlon D. Bolton, who proposed the ordinance. "I am pleased that my colleagues have supported this ordinance, which codifies our commitment to providing fair wages."
According to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), which created a living wage calculator, a living wage refers to a threshold that allows workers and their families to have decent standards of living. It is calculated based on the location.
Currently, the minimum hourly wage Tamarac pays employees is $ 14.64. The City Commission will establish a living wage that will take effect on October 1, 2021.

On this occasion, In the USA it took the pulse of professionals in various fields and activities in South Florida, and other destinations internationally for being a global pandemic, to know what they have experienced in this quarantine and social distancing; some working from home, others with their businesses running half way to cover only basic expenses, and those with less luck did not receive a salary for the closure of the companies where they provided their services.

At the time of Covid-19, a series of unanswered questions comes to mind.
