Iron Range Lawmaker Seeks Higher Mininum Wage

Virginia Lawmaker Tom Rukavina has introduced a bill that would increase Minnesota's minimum wage to $6.75 an hour and a dollar more for employees of larger companies. Rukavina said 80% of the people he's polled support the move and think the wage should be increased every year by the rate of inflation. Rukavina said his bill includes the inflation factor increase and he knows the Governor opposes it, but he's willing to negotiate. A similar bill has been introduced in the Minnesota Senate.
