Ky. House considers raising state's minimum wage

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB0 -- A Ky. House committee is considering a bill that would increase the minimum wage in the state.

It would phase in a minimum wage hike to $10.10 an hour over three years.

Supporters say it's needed to help more workers earn a living wage. Opponents warn that it will drive some small companies out of business.

As of 11:30 Thursday morning, the hearing was ongoing and no vote had been taken.
