New Hampshire Democrats aren’t maxed out on trying to set and increase a minimum wage.
The Democrat-led New Hampshire House voted once again Thursday to establish and gradually increase the state’s minimum wage, despite a likely veto from Republican Gov. Chris Sununu.
Sununu vetoed a bill last year that would have created a $10 per hour minimum wage this year and raised it to $12 in 2022, but Democrats believe their chances are better now that surrounding states have increased their minimums. For now, New Hampshire defaults to the federal minimum of $7.25 per hour.
