MINNESOTA NEWS ROUND-UP: Gov. Dayton to sign minimum wage increase bill on Monday
ST. PAUL -- Governor Dayton is scheduled to sign the minimum wage bill into law Monday afternoon in the State Capitol Rotunda (Mon 2:30 p.m.)
Minnesotans are invited to attend the public bill signing ceremony. The state's minimum wage will go up to $9.50 at large employers and $7.75 at small employers by 2016 and will be indexed to inflation after that. Republicans warn the minimum wage increase will force employers to cut thousands of jobs in Minnesota.
