Senate approves $9.50 minimum wage
ST. PAUL — Supporters of raising the state minimum wage say a bill senators passed Wednesday would boost 357,000 Minnesotans’ pay.
The measure that passed 35-31 would raise the wage floor to $9.50 an hour at large businesses in three years. The Democratic-controlled House is expected to pass the bill as early as today, and Gov. Mark Dayton says he supports it.
