Lawmakers Debate Timing, Amount Of Minimum Wage

May 8, 2014

The Vermont Legislature is working toward an adjournment this weekend, but many issues are still unresolved. Among them is a bill that would increase the state’s minimum wage. But lawmakers haven’t been able to agree how much the wage should go up, and when.

There’s been some last minute maneuvering around this issue, with Gov. Peter Shumlin getting involved and a vote in the House later tonight.
