US House Passes Minimum Wage Tax Breaks
The US House of Representatives overwhelmingly approved small business tax breaks to be attached to the new minimum wage bill in a 360-45 vote on Friday. The House tax breaks include over 1.8 billion dollars in tax cuts compared to 8.3 billion the Senate approved on a similar minimum wage bill. Although House Democrats had originally hoped to pass the minimum wage bill without any associated tax breaks, it saw problems in the Senate where it was feared the bill would not receive any necessary Republican votes without including small business tax breaks. According to Senate Finance Committee chairman Max Baucus it should take two or three weeks for House and Senate negotiators to reconcile the two variations into one bill. Source: Yahoo News.
