Bill boosting minimum wage to $9.20 an hour to get hearing in state House
The debate over raising Michigan's minimum wage moves to the state House Wednesday.
A legislative panel will hear testimony on a bill that cleared the state Senate last week. Senate Bill 934 would gradually increase the wage from $7.40 an hour to $9.20 an hour. After 2017, the minimum wage would rise with inflation.
State Rep. Pete Lund, R-Shelby Township, chairs the panel. He says he's open to the plan - but he has some concerns.
