Michigan's Minimum Wage Increases

Michigan's minimum wage goes up on Monday.

It's not enough though to reduce the wage gap, according to the Michigan League for Public Policy.

As of Labor Day, minimum wage in Michigan will be $8.15 an hour.

This is part of a long-term plan to raise it to $9.25 an hour by 2018.

The League says Michigan still has the eight-highest wage gap in the county, with women making only 74 cents for every dollar a man makes.

The League wants the minimum wage raised above ten dollars, more money spent on education and the earned income tax credit restored.
