House Approves Minimum Wage Hike

The House has approved a bill that would raise the state's 8-dollars an hour minimum wage to 11-dollars an hour by 2017. The Senate passed the measure last week. It does not include automatic adjustments in the minimum wage for inflation, as the Senate had called for in an earlier version. The bill needs a final procedural vote in the Senate before heading to Governor Patrick's desk.
