VRF Opposes Minimum Wage Increase
Minimum wage legislation is to be heard next week. Stop minimum wage from increasing to $15 an hour. Please contact your legislators immediately and urge them to oppose such a drastic increase.
Minimum wage increases will have a major impact on the Retail Industry and cause our members to make difficult choices when it comes to employee hours, benefits, and much more.
Several bills have been introduced to mandate paid leave by employers. They vary in how this is accomplished, but all will create a one size fits all approach to leave which could be detrimental to the Retail Industry.
Legislation has been introduced to eliminate the Right to Work law in Virginia. This will allow unions to have a strong-hold in the Commonwealth. Which could negatively impact the employer/employee relationship in the Retail Industry.
