Thanks a lot for sharing the list of free resources to run home-based businesses. When it comes to the website, the design of the site always matters a lot. And to present any product, or to show the specifications of the products, most websites are preferring images, as it is easy for the users to understand. And the most crucial part is that used images should have a small size, but at the same time, its quality should not be compromised. Here I would like to recommend a tool, Resize.live, to resize, crop, rotate and flip images in real-time.

Minimum Wages Increase

According to a study by Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory 25 states will raise their minimum wage in 2021, with 21 of those states enacting the increases on New Year’s day.

By the beginning of the New Year, New York and Oregon, which both have regional minimum wage rates, will see the highest wages reaching $15.00 in New York City and $14.00 in the Portland Metro Area effective July 1, 2021. 

At the end of the spectrum, the lowest minimum wage rates of $5.15 are in Georgia and Wyoming. However, most employers and employees are subject to the higher federal minimum wage rate of $7.25 per hour.

Increasing the minimum wage is expected to pose more challenges for small businesses already grappling with the effects of the pandemic. According to Small Business Index issued by the Chamber of Commerce, half (50%) of small businesses see their operations continuing for a year or less before having to permanently close. In some extreme cases businesses already hard hit by the pandemic will have to choose between raising wages or terminating staff.

During this quarter more small businesses plan to reduce staff in this quarter (14%) up from 9% last quarter reaching levels not seen since the beginning of the pandemic in late April (13%). Only 27% of businesses plan to increase their number of employees in the next year.

 

Additional Findings

  • To support the healthcare industry, New Jersey has established a minimum wage for direct-care workers employed by long-term health-care facilities. As of September 16, 2020, the minimum wage for these workers is $3.00 higher than the state minimum wage.
  • The city of Emeryville, California will have the highest minimum wage in the country, at $16.84 per hour. 
  • Seattle is the city with the second highest with a minimum wage of $16.69, while the highest state rate will be California’s at $14.00 per hour.
  • Some of the new rates in states such as California, Colorado, Maine, Washington are the result of previously approved incremental increases to reach a specific amount that is considered to be a ‘living wage’. 
  • While other States’ increases reflect an annual cost-of-living adjustment, which accounts for the changes in states like Alaska, Florida, Minnesota, and Montana.

The federal minimum wage has remained at $7.25 since July of 2009, its longest time without an increase since its inception in 1938. However states are free to raise the price floor.
