One of the many times that the community has come to City Hall to make the case for a municipal minimum wage in Minneapolis.

As you may recall, last year the Minneapolis City Council commissioned a study of the impact of raising the minimum wage. We decided to evaluate both a $12 and $15 per hour wage at both the City and regional levels. The study is complete and we hope that you can join the national team of researchers as they present their findings to the Committee of the Whole this Wednesday.
The deputy City Coordinator, Nuria Rivera- Vandermyde, will also present the plan for how community members will be able to provide input on the minimum wage plan that staff will develop for the City Council to consider in early 2017.
