Arkansas Children’s Raising Minimum Wage

Arkansas Childrens Hospital

Arkansas Children’s CEO Marcy Doderer said one of the state’s largest health care systems will raise its minimum wage for entry level jobs to $14 per hour in the next fiscal year.

Doderer, appearing on this week’s edition of Talk Business & Politics, discussed this topic, the debate over pre-existing conditions, and a new legal initiative underway with Walmart and Legal Aid of Arkansas.

“In some circles, it’s probably considered controversial,” she said of the minimum wage increase. “I think it is a testament to the Board of Directors of the Arkansas Children’s System and the importance they place on having a strong, vibrant workforce.”   MORE
