Bucks Establishes Wage Floor of $12 Per Hour for New Arena

The Bucks announced an agreement on Tuesday that will give  hundreds of jobs to people who live in Milwaukee.

The agreement between the team and the alliance for good jobs  establishes a wage floor of $12 per hour for all covered employees in the arena and surrounding district.

That will go up to $15 an hour by 2023.

Additionally, at least half of those employees will have to live in specific Milwaukee zip codes that have been hit hard by unemployment.

Another provision allows arena district employees to unionize.

Groundbreaking on the new arena is slated for June 18 with the new complex is expected to open in Fall of 2018.
