minimum wage hike
A Senate panel has killed a proposal to raise Virginia’s minimum wage.
Rep. Barbara Lee, D-Calif., said that she supports raising the minimum wage in the state of California to $26 an hour, adding that she doesn’t think such a hike would hurt small business owners.
he Maryland Senate advanced a measure to raise the state’s minimum wage on Friday, paving the way for a vote as soon as this weekend.
House Democrats said Thursday they will try to highlight GOP resistance to a higher minimum wage with a tactical maneuver meant to bring new attention to an issue they consider a political winner.
