Voters could have the last word on minimum wage

Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- Voters could have the last word on raising Minnesota's minimum wage. A bill calling for a referendum on the issue is under consideration by the senate rules committee right now.

The amendment was introduced yesterday and if passed by the House and Senate, voters would determine if the state's minimum wage should increase automatically with inflation.

The referendum calls for raising the minimum wage from 6.15 to 9.50 an hour over the next three years... then grow with inflation for years to come.
