Mar 6, 2018

A group wants to initiate a measure to raise North Dakota’s minimum wage.

The current state minimum wage is $7.25 an hour.

The group is proposing a phased increase – to take it to $9.83 an hour in 2019, $12.41 in 2020 and $15 in 2021. After that, there would be annual increases tied to cost of living.

The North Dakota Legislature will consider a bill to raise the state’s minimum wage.

Rep. Marvin Nelson (D-Rllla) wants to raise the minimum to $9.25 an hour. The bill would tie further increases in the minimum wage to the Consumer Price Index.

Nelson said he’s hoping raising the minimum wage will attract workers to rural North Dakota.
