New Hampshire’s Senate on Thursday passed a bill to raise the state’s minimum wage.
The bill, which passed 14-10, would raise the minimum wage to $10 an hour in 2020 and $11 or $12 an hour in 2021, depending on additional benefits provided by employers, such as paid sick days. The bill also would set the tipped minimum wage at $4 an hour, with workers making below the new minimum wage with tips being compensated for the difference by their employer.
The House passed its own bill last week that would set the minimum wage at $9.50 in 2020, $10.75 in 2021 and $12 in 2022. Democrats control both chambers.
