Kriseman’s “city of opportunity" supports bans the box and raising city workers minimum wages

Mayor Rick Kriseman on Tuesday proposed raising the minimum wage for city workers to $12.50 an hour. Under Kriseman's plan, at least 65 full time workers would get the bump in their paychecks. Flanked by Deputy Mayor Kanika Tomalin and community organization leaders on the steps of City Hall, he also announced support for the "ban the box" initiative, which eliminates job candidates from automatically having to disclose previous arrests on city job applications beginning Jan. 1.
