Bill to increase minimum wage advances

January 15, 2019

On January 14, the Senate Commerce and Labor Committee voted 6-4 to report SB 1200 (Dance), which incrementally increases the minimum wage from current federally mandated level of $7.25 per hour to $15 per hour effective July 1, 2021. The first increase would raise the minimum wage to $10 per hour effective July 1, 2019. This is the latest development in a multi-year effort by the bill’s patron to raise the minimum wage. The bill is expected to go before the full Senate later this week.
