Proposed legislation would increase minimum wage in Kentucky

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Speaker of the House in Kentucky has filed a bill to increase minimum wage.

It would be the first increase in seven years. Greg Stumbo says it's way past time to give a raise to families who depend on a minimum wage.

If passed, the bill would increase minimum wage from $7.25 to $10.10 an hour by July 2018. 

Twenty-nine states and the District of Columbia currently have minimum wages higher than the federal minimum wage.
