      Minimum wage bill moves forward

      There could be an increase in Rhode Island's minimum wage.

      The senate labor committee has approved a bill to raise the minimum wage by .25-cents.

      The measure would increase the minimum wage from $7.75 an hour to $8 starting in January. The compromise bill now goes to the full senate for a vote, then onto the house.
