Raising The Minimum Wage

Rep. Kathy Hinkle (D-Louisa) is leading Democratic lawmakers in Frankfort by sponsoring a bill that would raise the minimum wage to $15 per hour by 2027, with incremental increases until then.The legislation, in part, is one of the main goals of Governor Andy Beshear, who made wages one of his talking points in last week’s State of the Commonwealth address.“There are far too many Kentucky moms and dads working two, three, four jobs just to try to scrape together the monthly budget, all while their bills go up but their wages stay the same,” Beshear said at the address.
