The House of Representatives voted Thursday to gradually raise the state’s minimum wage to $15 an hour, which would be the first increase in 13 years.
In an unusual move, the Democratic rank and file overruled their leadership by supporting $2 more per hour than the House’s policy committee recommended.
If signed into law, the minimum wage would rise in six incremental steps to reach $15 an hour by Jan. 1, 2025.
