Minimum Wage Hike

State lawmakers are back at the Capitol to begin the 2008 session. At the top of the legislative list are bills to fund transporation, education and raise the minimum wage. Virginia Representative Tom Rukavina said the suggested bill would raise the minimum to $7.75 an hour for large companies, $6.75 for smaller ones. And the wage would be indexed to inflation. The bill goes to a House Committee on Valentine's Day, Thursday, February 14th. The Minnesota Senate approved a similar bill last year.
