Email

MAPLEWOOD, Minn. (AP) — On the day that California's governor signed a bill lifting the minimum wage to $10 within three years, Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton has made clear he'd be disappointed if the Legislature doesn't push up his state's wage floor next session.

Dayton spoke to a retiree council of the AFL-CIO on Wednesday. He says it's wrong that Minnesota has a lower minimum wage than all of its Midwest neighbors and one of the lowest in the country.
