Legislative Updates

 
"Like many other states, Wisconsin’s Unemployment Insurance (UI) Reserve Fund had to rely on federal loans to help fund unemployment benefits paid to record numbers of claimants during and following the deep national recession of 2007-09.
 
The federal government began charging states interest on these loans in 2011, and Wisconsin in September 2011 made its first payment, totaling $42.3 million, with funds collected through a special assessment on employers.
 
 
It’s only half as much as the increase this year, but Ohio’s minimum wage will get a boost on Jan. 1, 2013. The minimum wage will rise 15 cents, to $7.85 an hour, in the new year, the Ohio Department of Commerce announced yesterday. For tipped employees, the new minimum will be $3.93 per hour, an increase of 8 cents an hour.
 
 
Washington state’s minimum wage increases by 15 cents to $9.19 an hour starting on New Year’s Day, the state Department of Labor & Industries announced Friday.
 
The state’s minimum wage is adjusted each year for inflation as measured by the Consumer Price Index over the preceding 12 months. This past year, it is up 1.67 percent. The yearly recalculation is required by Initiative 688, which Washington voters passed in 1998.
