D.C. City Council Unanimously Approves Minimum Wage Increase
The Washington, D.C. City Council unanimously approved a bill raising the city’s minimum wage to $11.50 per hour.
The Council must hold a final vote on the bill and send it to Mayor Vincent C. Gray before it becomes law. The final vote will probably occur early next year.
If the measure passes, the new minimum wage will take effect in 2016, making it one of the highest minimum wages in the country.
