VICTORY: Minnesota increases minimum wage
The minimum wage is not a living wage. In Minnesota, minimum wage was not indexed to inflation. Minnesota minimum wage workers shouldn’t have to wait nine years or more for a raise, hoping that the political climate might be right – and businesses should have the stability of knowing in advance what they will be paying their workers. Thanks to grassroots activism that included 2,700 CREDO signatures, Minnesota raised its minimum wage, indexed to inflation.
