Minimum wage bill moves forward

Posted: Updated:

There could be an increase in Rhode Island's minimum wage.

The senate labor committee has approved a bill to raise the minimum wage by .25-cents.

The measure would increase the minimum wage from $7.75 an hour to $8 starting in January.  The compromise bill now goes to the full senate for a vote, then onto the house.
