State House Sends Minimum Wage Increase To Governor
(St. Paul, MN) -- The minimum wage in Minnesota is headed to nine-dollars-50-cents an hour by 2016. The state House passed legislation and sent the bill to Governor Dayton for his signature yesterday. Future increases will be indexed to inflation. The first hike will raise the minimum wage to eight-dollars-an-hour on August 1, followed by a jump to nine-dollars next August before another 50-cents is tacked on in 2016.
