Congratulations to Amy Taylor of Shaw’s in Rockland! We hosted Maine’s Fifth Annual Best Bagger Championship to honor our state’s “best” grocery checkout bagger. Bagging is a critically important step for many grocery stores as it is the last impression of the store’s attention to detail, emphasizes the employee and store’s dedication to exceptional customer service and helps ensure customers’ food gets home in perfect condition.
Effective September 12, 2018, Public Law 2017, chapter 474 (“PL 2017, c. 474”) was enacted to generally conform Maine’s income and estate tax laws to the federal Internal Revenue Code (“IRC”) as amended through March 23, 2018. This means that, unless otherwise excepted, Maine now conforms to federal tax law changes enacted on or before March 23, 2018, including the federal Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (December 22, 2017), the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018 (February 9, 2018), and the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2018 (March 23, 2018).

AUGUSTA — Maine Departments of Labor (MDOL) and Education (DOE) launched the Youth Employment and the Steps to Success Initiative (YES) earlier this year to create awareness around the reciprocal benefits of youth employment and to help address the state’s workforce needs in this era of historically-low unemployment rate and tight labor market. The Department of Labor is offering youth-employment reminders for minors in the workplace, students, parents, and employers.
