Measure to Boost Minimum Wage in State Passes Out of Committee

Beckley Register-Herald – A bill that would raise the minimum wage for some 100,000 West Virginians passed the House Committee on Finance Thursday, with delegates from the region voting on opposite sides of the issue. Read

The bill would take the current $7.25 an hour state minimum wage to $8 an hour by Jan. 1, 2015, and to $8.75 by 2016. That changes the original bill which would have increased workers’ wages to $7.85 by July 1 and to $8.25 in 2015.
