D.C. City Council Officially Raises the Minimum Wage
The living wage bill officially passed through the D.C. City Council today, and is now on its way to Mayor Gray for signature. Mayor Gray has promised to sign the bill this time, a measure he initially rejected earlier this year.
The bill will raise the minimum wage to $9.50 in July 2014, $10.50 the following year, and $11.50 by 2016.
The bill also provides for future increases tied to the Consumer Price Index.
