Minimum wage hike support


Members of Rhode Island's congressional delegation support a move in Congress to raise the federal minimum wage to ten-dollars-ten-cents an hour over two years. At a meeting of the Community Action Partnership in Providence yesterday, Senator Sheldon Whitehouse and Congressmen Jim Langevin and David Cicilline all voiced strong support for the initiative.  The current federal minimum of seven-dollars-25-cents per hour took effect in July of 2009.  Rhode Island's current minimum wage is eight-dollars an hour.
