In less than 10 months, New Hampshire businesses could be forced to pay a minimum wage of $10 per hour, a significant increase from the current rate of $7.25 per hour.
New Hampshire’s minimum wage is the lowest of the New England states, with the $12 per hour now paid by businesses in Massachusetts reflecting the highest such wage.
Tuesday, New Hampshire Senate President Donna Soucy, D-Manchester, introduced legislation to raise minimum wage through Senate Bill 10. The legislation is co-sponsored by Sen. Cindy Rosenwald, D-Nashua; Sen. Shannon Chandley, D-Amherst; Sen. Tom Sherman, D-Rye; Sen. Martha Hennessy, D-Hanover; and Sen. Melanie Levesque, D-Brookline.
