On Thursday, the National Labor Relations Board ruled that employers are required to pay workers at least $15 an hour.
The wage hike comes in response to a ruling last month by the NLRB that said companies were not required to provide minimum wage and overtime protections to their employees.
That ruling was made possible by a $15 minimum wage in California, a state that President Donald Trump is considering signing into law.
It’s an important win for millions of workers in the United States who rely on overtime pay.
In 2018, the Bureau of Labor Statistics estimated that about half of the country’s salaried workers made more than $15 per hour.
But the NLR ruling says those workers don’t need overtime protections.
That’s important for many people who earn less than $20 an hour, and who work at restaurants, warehouses and other low-wage jobs.
The wage increase, which will take effect in April, is also good news for the 1.3 million low-income workers who rely primarily on unemployment benefits.
The ruling doesn’t address the issue of wage theft, but it is a victory for workers who have long complained about being left out of the system.
The ruling comes amid a wave of protests and other actions by workers and allies in cities across the country.
Many of these protests are organized by the Service Employees International Union, or SEIU.
Many workers are concerned about being denied basic rights that include the right to organize and bargain collectively, or the right for workers to form unions.
They’re also frustrated that they have no control over their employers.
“I’m glad that this decision will be overturned.
It means that the workers that make the most money are going to get the most,” said James Robinson, an organizer for the Service Workers International Union.
The union has long pushed for the federal minimum wage to be raised to $15.
SEIU has long argued that the current minimum wage should be the national minimum.
The decision has been met with some skepticism in the labor community.
The NLRB ruling comes after months of debate over whether the federal government should set a minimum wage that would include workers at the lowest wage tiers.
It also comes on the heels of a decision by the National Retail Federation to cut more than half of its stores from its workforce.
The NLRB, a federal agency that enforces labor law, has made the decision after reviewing thousands of comments from businesses and trade groups, and hearing testimony from workers and their supporters.
The court also said that while the decision should not apply to low-level wage workers, it will apply to employees earning more than the minimum wage.
In the past, the NLTRB has found that employers have been breaking federal law by failing to provide basic worker protections.
The law doesn’t specifically require employers to pay higher wages, but some of the NLERB’s previous decisions have indicated that employers do have a legal obligation to provide some protections to low wage workers.
In September, the court struck down a federal law that limited the amount employers could pay workers, including the minimum, if they had employees with disabilities.
That decision also allowed the NLIRB to review the employer’s compliance with the Fair Labor Standards Act, which sets minimum wage standards.
“We will review this decision closely to ensure that we are following the law and that we can ensure that our minimum wage laws reflect our values as a country and are consistent with our principles,” said a spokesman for the NLHRB.
