DC to Raise Minimum Wage to $15 an Hour.

From the Washington Post:

“D.C. Mayor Muriel E. Bowser’s proposal to increase the city’s minimum wage to $15 an hour passed a committee vote Wednesday, setting up a final series of votes on the measure by the D.C. Council this month.

The council so far appears likely to keep intact the bulk of Bowser’s plan: matching New York City and California with one of the nation’s highest hourly minimums. The District’s minimum wage would increase by about 70 cents a year, reaching $15 by 2020. After that, it would be indexed to inflation, probably rising a couple of percentage points each year.”
