Kotek To Offer Minimum-wage Legislation

(Salem, OR)  --  House Speaker Tina Kotek says she's moving forward with a plan to raise Oregon's minimum wage to 13 dollars an hour over the next three years.  That's nearly four dollars more than the current minimum wage of nine-25 an hour.  Kotek's bill would also repeal a state law that pre-empts local minimum-wage increases.  The minimum-wage hike, if passed, will begin January 1st with an eleven-dollar minimum, rise to 12 dollars in 2017, and to 13 dollars in 2018.
