Training Wage Introduced for Younger Workers in Michigan

Michigan Senate Bill 250, also called "The Workforce Opportunity Wage Act," may allow employers to pay employees under 20 years of age a a wage 15% lower than minimum wage during their training period, up to the first 90 days of employment. This "training wage" is intended to make hiring younger, less experienced workers a more attractive option to employers, leading to overall improvements in unemployment rates and leading to a stronger workforce.
