A judge has delayed the implementation of a minimum wage hike and paid sick leave.
The Court of Claims judge issued an order Friday to put off any changes until next February 19th. The decision comes just a couple weeks after the same judge ruled a move by state lawmakers to amend voter-proposed changes to the minimum wage and sick leave was unconstitutional.
An appeal of the ruling is likely.
The Michigan Restaurant and Lodging Association says the judge's move prevents the immediate economic decimation of full-service restaurants, but it leaves a teetering industry unsure of its future and incapable of making informed decisions to regain stability.
