Minimum Wage Increase Takes One Step Forward Today

That's the plan according to the chair of the House Committee on Education and Labor, George Miller who is announcing an expected vote on the increase in the House of Representatives today. You can check out the details of how the House proposal would work at the Committee's website, Raise the Minimum Wage. The bill itself is the Fair Minimum Wage Act of 2007.

However, the UPI is reporting that there may be problems in the Senate unless it is coupled with tax relief for small businesses. See Minimum wage may face Senate problem.
