CONFERENCE COMMITTEE AGREES TO MINIMUM WAGE BILL

State House and Senate negotiators have reached a compromise on a bill hiking the minimum wage. The bill filed last night by a six-member conference committee would increase the current $8 per hour minimum wage by $3 over the next three years. The hourly minimum for the state's lowest paid workers would go to $9 in 2015, to $10 in 2016 and finally to $11 in 2017.
