Ward, Radinovich support minimum wage increase
State Reps. John Ward, DFL-Baxter, and Joe Radinovich, DFL-Crosby, supported the bill to increase the state’s minimum wage to $9.50 per hour by 2016.
Sen. Paul Gazelka, R-Cass County, supported a reasonable minimum wage increase to match the federal standard. He said raising the wage too high, too fast, and putting it on auto pilot is too risky for a healthy Minnesota economy.
