Two Madison Lawmakers Introduce $15 an Hour Minimum Wage Bill

Friday, June 18th, 2021 -- 12:01 PM

(WMTV) Two lawmakers from Madison have introduced legislation Thursday to raise Wisconsin's minimum wage to $15 an hour.

State Sen. Melissa Agard and State Rep. Lisa Subeck introduced the legislation as a part of a broader package. It would initially raise the wage from $7.25 to $10.15 an hour, then it would rise to $15 a year later.

Anthony Steward, a representative of the Milwaukee Area Service and Hospitality Workers, was also in support of the proposal. The proposal would also adjust the state’s minimum wage based on the consumer price index each year.
