BODY
WHEREAS, the Board of County Commissioners on May 11, 1999, enacted Ordinance 99-44 establishing a Living Wage requirement for specified County service contracts, specified permittees and for County employees, which was codified in the County Code as Section 2-8.9 (“Living Wage Ordinance”); and
WHEREAS, the Board of County Commissioners in the Living Wage Ordinance established an advisory board known as the Living Wage Commission to make recommendations to the Board of County Commissioners regarding the effectiveness of the Living Wage Ordinance; and
WHEREAS, the Living Wage Ordinance includes ramp services such as loading and unloading cargo to and from aircraft at Miami-Dade Aviation Department (“MDAD”) facilities as a covered service; and
WHEREAS, since the loading and unloading of cargo to and from aircraft is already a covered service, it is advisable to add in-warehouse cargo handling as a specified covered service and thereby bring the warehouse portion of the cargo handling process within the ambit of the Living Wage Ordinance,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT ORDAINED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA:
