This resolution, in order to provide community benefits from development of the County Park East land, creates the Community and Economic Development (CED) Fund; adopts the Park East Redevelopment Compact (PERC); and establishes the policies for the sale of the County's Park East land.
This ordinance expands Milwaukee County's non-discrimination policy to prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, creed, disability, ancestry, and status as a victim of domestic abuse, sexual assault or stalking to ensure equal opportunity in contracting, employment, promotional opportunity, and equal access to public services.
The ordinance requires Miwaukee County and employers that are contractors, subcontractors, or lessees of, or recipients of economic development financial assistance from, the county to pay all covered full and part-time employees a living wage equal to 100% of the poverty income level set forth annually by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services for a family of four divided by 2,080 hours. Covered tipped employees and those paid on commission shall be paid an hourly wage that will, when coupled with the other compensation, at least equal the minimum wage rate. Employers with 20 or fewer employees are exempted. Airport concessionaires are exempted from the provisions of this chapter for contracts executed prior to January 1, 2017.
