Minimum Wage Increasing In 21 States, 26 Cities, And Counties

Wednesday (Jan 1), the minimum wage will increase in 21 states and 26 cities and counties. In 17 of those jurisdictions, the minimum wage will reach or surpass $15 per hour. Later in 2020, four more states and 23 additional localities will also raise their minimum wage, 15 of them to $15 or more. It is the most significant number of states ever to raise their wage floors, both in January and for the year as a whole. More and more jurisdictions have been increasing their minimum wages since the Fight for the $15 movement began in November 2012. Texas Democrats, union leaders, and activists want to increase the state’s Minimum wage to $10.10, and eventually $15.
