      Minimum Wage & Visit Florida Forum- Collier Chapter

      Join the Collier Chapter of the Florida Restaurant & Lodging Association for a discussion on the impact of a $15.00/hour minimum wage with Richard Turrner, Senior VP of Legisaltive Affair at FRLA.  Between the proposed constitutional amendment to raise the minimum wage in Florida and the passage of HR582 in the US House to raise the minimum wage everywhere, the potential impact of an increase to the minimum wage should be top-of-mind for every business.  For those with tipped employees, the impact may be particularly devastating because both proposals reduce or eliminate the tip credit. We will also take this tme to discuss VISIT FLORIDA.  As you know, VISIT FLORIDA is vital to our tourism industry.  This year they received $50 million and are set to sunset in June 2020.  Join us in a discussion on the importance of fighting for this organization.  Thank you to our host site, the Hilton in Naples, who will provide a lite breakfast. Proceeds from this event will assist our High School ProStart/Culinary programs.
