Maine Voters OK Minimum Wage Boost

Nov 9, 2016

 

Minimum wage workers in Maine are going to get a raise.

According to Maine Public Broadcasting, voters, by a solid margin, supported the ballot measure that will boost the current $7.50 an hour minimum wage to $12 an hour by 2020.

It will also increase tipped workers’ base wages, which some in the restaurant industry say will increase costs and change the culture of hospitality.
