House passes minimum wage deal; Dayton to sign off on increase
ST. PAUL -- Minnesota's minimum wage is about to rise.
After the House passed 71-60 a higher minimum wage Thursday, it heads to Gov. Mark Dayton, who plans to sign it into law Monday.
"I think this is a great trade off, minimum wage for a better life for a great many people in this state," Rep. Tim Mahoney, D-St. Paul, said.
Republicans said they agree higher wages are needed, but many did not like the bill that passed.
