A deputy for Mayor Buddy Dyer, identified as Donald Graham, announced that these efforts have been cooking for the past five years, according to the Orlando Sentinel.
It is estimated that increases are staggered and will start at $13 this year, $14 in 2020 to end in 2021 at $15 per hour.
Another important fact is that those people who earn more than $15 per hour will see their salaries adjusted in the same proportion.
The announcement will benefit some 300 employees, including members of the Service Employees International Union, the Laborers' International Union of North America, the International Association of Firefighters, among others.
It is to be noted that the Orlando House of Representatives voted to raise the statewide minimum wage to $15 for the next seven years but the measure has not been considered by the largely Republican-controlled Senate.
Other large companies in that state, such as Disney, Universal and Demings, have also raised the minimum wage for their employees to $15.
