House To Vote On $9.25 An Hour Minimum Wage Rise

Posted: Updated:
LANSING, Mich. (AP) - The Republican-controlled Michigan House is debating legislation to raise the minimum wage to $9.25 per hour by 2017.

GOP legislative leaders were working Tuesday to head off a proposed Democratic-backed ballot initiative to raise the wage to $10.10 from the current $7.40 an hour.

The House measure up for a vote Tuesday would raise the minimum wage from $7.40 an hour. The Republican-led Senate may vote later Tuesday to send it to Republican Gov. Rick Snyder.

The bill includes a provision tying the minimum wage to inflation with a cap.

It also would raise the tipped employee wage to $3.50 an hour from $2.65.
