"The Fair Minimum Wage Act of 2007, H.R. 2, will raise the minimum wage from $5.15 per hour to $7.25 per hour in three increments over two years and two months. It will also extend the minimum wage, on a separate timetable, to the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, a U.S. territory in the Pacific Oceans where labor abuses have been rampant."The press release states that the House is scheduled to vote on this legislation, called The Fair Minimum Wage Act of 2007, H.R. 2, on Wednesday, January 10.
I prefer to call it the No Labor Union Left Behind Act...or just simply the No Garment Factory Left in the CNMI Act.
