Raise the Wage Coalition
Friday marked the first time in 10 years that Minnesotans got a minimum wage increase. The state’s minimum wage for large employers is now $8 an hour.
A political coalition pushing for a minimum wage increase in Minnesota is rallying in the Capitol rotunda as the new legislative session gets underway. House Speaker Paul Thissen and Senate Majority Leader Tom Bakk are scheduled to speak at the Tuesday event sponsored by the Raise the Wage Coalition.
