Partner John Tocci discusses the “grand bargain” bill, which Governor Charlie Baker signed into law last month, on Nightside with Dan Rea (guest host Marisa DeFranco) on July 17, 2018. The bill will ultimately raise the state’s minimum wage to $15 an hour, implement a guaranteed paid family and medical leave program in Massachusetts and establishes a permanent sales tax holiday. It also includes a new payroll tax and gradually eliminates the existing time-and-one-half premium pay for retail workers on Sundays and certain holidays.
