New Hampshire House and Senate conferees reached an agreement Wednesday on increasing the hourly minimum wage without the provision for tipped workers that the hospitality industry was seeking.
“We are going to ask the governor to veto this,” said Henry Veilleux, a lobbyist for the New Hampshire Lodging and Restaurant Association. “We wouldn’t have under the Senate version.”
The tipped wage was the main difference between the versions of Senate Bill 10, both of which would increase the minimum wage from the current $7.25 an hour to $10 next year and $12 in 2022. (The conferees also cut out a provision that would have lowered the minimum to $11 an hour for employers that offer paid sick days.)
