House votes for minimum wage increase

The House passed just a couple hours ago an increase in the minimum wage. It was remarkable in that this was the first day that it was clear the Republicans weren't calling the shots. Many Republicans opposed to increasing the minimum wage put forward several amendments to try to kill the bill or dilute its impact, but they failed for the most part. The income threshold for what will be considered a small business (and thus subject to a lower minimum wage) was slightly increased from $500,000 to $625,000, which sounds reasonable.

Our state's minimum wage has not been increased in a long time. It's about time to give working people relief.
