A California human resources consulting firm has signed a lease for 30,000 square feet of Bank of America Plaza office space, writes Tennessean reporter Getahn Ward, and plans to hire 200 people between now and the end of the year. DayNine, which was launched in 2009, runs seven other U.S. offices — including one in Atlanta — as well as in London and Sydney.
DayNine is working with city and state officials on an incentive package tied to its expansion here, Ramos said. The company also looks to work with area colleges and universities and is already talking to other companies about attracting and recruiting more young professionals to Nashville.
Littleton was later asked about Tennessee increasing its minimum wage, which is currently $7.25 per hour.
“I think it will eventually happen. I think we need to do it gradually,” Littleton said. “Maybe even this next session.”
Sen. Kerry Roberts, also a Republican, didn't exactly say he was against the increase himself, but said it would have tough sledding in the Senate:
“The House and Senate truly do operate very differently from each other. The bodies truly do have their own personalities,” Roberts said. “I don’t think it would pass the Senate. I don’t see the support in the Senate. It might move forward in the House.”
