Grand Bargain Information Session - July 17th DON't MISS THIS!

YOU ARE INVITED!

July 17th 8:00am
BVCC Conference Room







The Massachusetts Legislature Passed a "Grand Bargain" Legislative Package Which Includes a $15 Minimum Wage and Paid Family/Medical Leave Program

Join fellow small business owners to learn about what was included in the final "Grand Bargain" legislative package. This legislation bundled parts from three ballot questions slated for the November 2018 ballot:
$15 Minimum Wage
Paid Family and Medical Leave
Sales Tax Rollback
This is your opportunity to learn about the final package and how it will impact your business. Following the presentation, there will be time for questions on how best to prepare your business for the new law, some of which goes into effect on January 1, 2019.
An important message to our members regarding ballot questions

To keep you informed of the progress of our legislators efforts in regards to the ballot questions, please see the attached information about the Legislature passing the "Grand Bargain" regarding two of the ballot questions that will no longer be on the ballot: Paid Family & Medical Leave & Minimum Wage.
Although not an ideal solution to ease the burden to small business, it is a good compromise compared to the radical proposals. Please thank our legislators for all of their hours of hard work in these negotiations.
