Statewide minimum wage hike starts today
Workers who receive tips will get a wage increase from $4.08 an hour to $4.15. This marks the second increase toward a statewide $15 minimum wage.

It's a return to form for Letterman, too, who has said he does not miss hosting the "Late Show with David Letterman". The first episode will stream on Friday, January 12, and a new episode will be made available each subsequent month in 2018. Stephen Colbert has taken over and done a fine job, but it's just not the same. According to The Washington Post, Letterman was paid $2 million for per episode for the six episode deal. "Then I didn't have a show for a long time, and I can't tell you how great it is to be out of the damn house", he added in the trailer (which you can view above).

In addition to conventional interview settings, the late-night host will also conduct filed pieces in far and wide locations, which will be tied to the iconic guest featured in the episode, and it will give Letterman the chance to dig deeper on particular topics.

Academy Award victor George Clooney, activist Malala Yousafzai and radio veteran Howard Stern will also be guests on the show. Netflix and the Radical brothers put this show idea together. Not only did the company pull Letterman out of retirement, but it bought Jerry Seinfeld's "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee" series last year and released two Dave Chappelle stand-up specials on New Year's Eve. The thing I like about it is that it fits exactly what I want to do and it's with people I'm fond of working with.
