D.C. Council Passes Minimum Wage Hike
Move over, San Francisco. The District is about to have the highest hourly minimum wage rate in the country, after the D.C. Council voted unanimously in favor of a bill raising the wage to $11.50 an hour by 2016.
The bill, produced in concert with similar legislation in Montgomery County and Prince George's County, doesn't raise the wage for tipped workers. Despite backing a lower, $10 wage, Vince Gray will sign the bill, according to a spokesman.
