The New Hampshire House Labor Committee went for the middle ground on Wednesday, aiming to set a state minimum wage of $12 an hour, the same amount the Senate is considering.
The panel also passed the Senate’s version of a paid family medical leave insurance program and a bill that forbids using credit checks in hiring employees.
The committee had three minimum wage bills with different targets to choose from: $10, $12 and $15 an hour. It recommended killing the first and combined the latter two.
