Minnesota Mayors Want Minimum Wage Hike
By Joe Sheeran, Minnesota 2020
February 07, 2014 In Minnesota, mayors from the Iron Range to the Twin Cities took a bold step to support low-wage workers. They are urging the state legislature to raise the minimum wage to at least $9.50 with increases for inflation. These mayors are also urging local leaders in other parts of the state to follow suit.
“A minimum wage increase would put more money in the pockets of Greater Minnesota workers, helping expand the economy in rural Minnesota and on The Range,” said Hibbing Mayor Rick Cannata.
