The council voted unanimously to pass the measure boosting the minimum hourly wage to $15 by 2020, with subsequent hikes tied to inflation. A final vote will come later this month, and Democratic Mayor Muriel Bowser has backed the

Once approved, the U.S. capital will join California and New York in making $15 the hourly minimum. At least eight cities, including Seattle, have also approved the $15 base.

“Raising the minimum wage will help address the issues of residents being

He and other supporters say Washington’s robust economy and growing

The District of Columbia’s base wage is $10.50, and will go up by $1 on July 1 under existing law. The federal minimum is $7.25 an hour.

The $15 minimum is estimated to raise wages for 114,000 workers, or about 14 percent of the District of Columbia’s workforce, according to an analysis for the
Custom Washington Redskins Jersey council by the non-profit Economic Policy Institute.

The higher pay proposal was supported by unions but was opposed by the District’s Chamber of Commerce. It said the District should not raise wages until neighboring suburbs do.

The District of Columbia’s booming restaurant industry also opposed it.

Some lawmakers said the measure did not go far enough to address a widening income gap and 18 percent poverty rate. Council member David Grosso added an amendment requiring the government to study a minimum income system to

“Raising the minimum wage is a good thing, but is $15 enough? Or should the
Custom Redskins Jersey number be $35, or $50 an hour?” he asked.

Under the measure, the minimum for workers who get tips, like waiters and bartenders, would also be $15 an hour by 2020. Following talks with unions, restaurateurs and community activists, employers would have to make up the difference between a base for tipped workers that will be $5 an hour in 2020, up from the current $2.77, Orange said.

Redskins Re-Sign Personalized Redskins jersey Running Back Chris Thompson

Chris Thompson will be returning to the Customized Washington Redskins Jersey in 2016, fresh off what was easily his best season yet in the NFL.

Thompson was an exclusive rights free agent and had an offer extended to him two weeks ago, along with inside linebacker Will Compton and punter Tress Way, who signed a new five-year deal on Saturday.

After two seasons dealing with injuries and a lengthy stint on the practice squad in 2014, Thompson stood out during last year’s training camp, grabbing the team’s third-down back role alongside Alfred Morris and Matt Jones.

“I think Chris Thompson is really starting to emerge as a third-down back, if we can obviously keep him healthy,” Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said in August. “He’s done an excellent both in the running game and the passing game and he’s done an excellent job in protection so far. Another competition for that spot is ongoing and will continue to go on throughout training camp and the preseason games.”

In the regular season opener against the Miami Dolphins, Thompson tallied 11 rushing yards on three carries.

Against the New York Giants Week 3, Thompson recorded his first touchdown of the season, hauling in a pass fromKirk Cousins in the fourth quarter.

The next week against the Philadelphia Eagles in a 23-20 victory, Thompson has the best game of his career, as he totaled 53 yards rushing – 42 of which came on a 3rd-and-19 draw play – along with 24 receiving yards on two receptions.

While Thompson dealt with a torn labrum late in the season, missing Weeks 14 and 15, the Florida State product returned to the field in the Custom Redskins Jersey NFC East-clinching victory over the Eagles on Dec. 26, catching a 12-yard touchdown pass in the third quarter of a 38-24 road victory.

In total, Thompson finished the season with 216 rushing yards on 35 carries and 240 receiving yards and two touchdowns on 35 receptions.

In January, Thompson underwent surgery to repair his torn labrum.

“I’ve been finding a way to play through a lot of stuff this year. Just to show the coaches, show my team, I’ll do whatever I can each and every week, and I’ll sacrifice until I can’t walk no more,” Thompson said. “That’s just who I am. But it’s been one of those things where I’ve been trying to show my teammates, show my coaches, the organization, I’m going to be healthy, I can play through hurt. Being hurt and injured is two totally different things.”

With Thompson returning, the Personalized Redskins Jersey currently have three running backs under contract, as Matt Jones andMack Brown are currently on the roster.

Alfred Morris and Pierre Thomas are currently free agents.
