The push is growing to raise the minimum wage in Minnesota. Some lawmakers want to pass a bill this session to raise it to $9.50 an hour, but some workers in Minneapolis were rallying for much more Saturday. “I believe workers have a right, have a basic human right to be able to make enough money to raise their families and have safe affordable housing,” Veronica Mendez Moore from Minneapolis said.
Two people are dead Saturday morning after a house fire at a Minnetonka home. The two-alarm fire started around 10:30 p.m. on Friday, on Westwood Road.
