House Democrats passed legislation Thursday that would raise New Hampshire’s minimum wage to $15 dollars an hour by 2025, $2 more than originally recommended.

New Hampshire’s current minimum wage is based on the federal minimum of $7.25 an hour. The House voted 212 to 155 to pass House Bill 731. The bills passed on the second day of Convening Day will require further action.

Rep. Brian Sullivan, D-Grantham, called it a bipartisan vote. “This is a huge step forward for families and workers in our state,” Sullivan said. On Jan. 1, 21 states saw their minimum wages increase, he said.
