Minimum Wage Increase

A pay raise is on the way for a lot of Michigan workers.

Michigan's minimum wage is getting a boost, and Tuesday, Governor Jennifer Granholm will make it official.

The governor is expected to sign the increase into law Tuesday morning, raising the state's minimum wage from five-fifteen an hour to six-ninety-five.

The wage hike takes effect in October.

The new law calls for the wage to jump up again to seven-forty an hour in July of 2008.
