Democrats Introduce Bill To Raise Minimum Wage To $15 By 2025

January 28, 2021

Seeking to fulfill a long-standing Democratic ambition, a coalition of lawmakers introduced a bill on Tuesday that would raise the national minimum wage to $15 an hour. The measure, which is also included in President Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion relief package, calls for gradually increasing the hourly wage in increments until it hits $15 in 2025. After that, it would be indexed to median wage growth — a move meant to guarantee wages keep up with inflation without needing new legislation.
