Senate to Revisit Raising Minimum Wage This Week

Posted: Updated:
The U.S. Senate is set to revisit a stalled proposal this week to raise the federal minimum wage from $7.25 to  $10.10 an hour.

President Obama and Congressional Democrats plan to push the issue on the campaign trail ahead of the November mid-term elections.

In the meantime, many states have made moves to raise their own minimum wages; 21 states and the District of Columbia already have higher wages. And that number will soon grow.  Lawmakers in  Maryland, Minnesota, Delaware and West Virginia have recently approved minimum wage increases.
