Assembly members and senators agreed Sunday to restore a provision to SB193 that raises the state's minimum wage to $9 for workers without employer-sponsored health insurance. It's expected to get final approval in the Senate.
Lawmakers also amended the measure to require overtime pay after 10 hours of work in an 18-hour period, and employees will still be able to collect overtime pay if they work more than 40 hours in a week.
Democrats have routinely voted against the measure, saying that changing the state's overtime rules would unfairly burden low-wage workers.
