Minneapolis City Council passes $15 Min. Wage Ordinance

The Minneapolis City Council voted Friday 11-1 to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour.

As a result, Minneapolis has become the first city in the state to raise wages that high.

During the city council’s two-hour debate Wednesday, members discussed the effect the ordinance would have on larger and smaller businesses.

The council ultimately voted to amend the proposed ordinance to extend the amount of time businesses would have to implement the new minimum wage.

Why should we be so surprised. Just remember this is the same city and state that sent Al Frankin to the US Senate.

Might want to check how that's playing out in Seattle. Businesses on the outskirts will benefit as businesses in city limits reduce, close and move.

Economics 101, baby!
