NightSide with Dan Rea – Rundown for December 27, 2018

Marisa DeFranco is in for Dan!

Illegal to Fire for Off-Hour Marijuana Use?  New legislation is planned to be introduced next month that would prevent workers from losing their jobs for consuming marijuana on their own time.  Senator Jason Lewis plans to introduce it but says “This is not intended to be a blanket protection for people to use cannabis whenever and wherever they like, but as long as they’re not impaired and it’s not impacting their work, employers should not be able to discriminate against them in hiring or promotion, and companies certainly should not be terminating people simply because they legally use marijuana on their own time.”  Should companies still be allowed to test for pot?  Will this legislature pass?  Call the show and join the conversation!

Minimum Wage on the Rise.  The Massachusetts minimum wage will jump to $12 an hour in the new year and will eventually climb to $15 an hour by the year 2023.  Marisa discusses the increases in minimum wage and wants to know how you feel about the eventual $15 an hour.  Listen tonight and join the conversation!
