Federal Minimum Wage for Veterans Administration Contractors

The American Health Care Association (AHCA) has responded to The Department of Labor’s notice of proposed rulemaking to establish a minimum wage of $10.10 per hour for all Veterans Administration (VA) contractors including long term care facilities who provide services to veterans.  AHCA requests an exemption from the proposed rule and states many facilities would be forced to cancel VA contracts if they are not exempted.  We have included a link to the AHCA response.
