Vermont Senate supports $12.50 minimum wage by 2021, after nixing House's plan

Last edited Wed May 22, 2019, 08:12 AM - Edit history (1)

The Senate on Tuesday approved a new plan to increase the minimum wage to $12.50 an hour by 2021.

The proposal comes after senators rejected a minimum wage bill passed by the House last week, which would have increased the minimum wage to $15 an hour by 2026 at the earliest. Senators argued the House measure didn’t raise the pay for low income workers fast enough.

The new minimum wage plan, tacked onto H.351, a workers’ compensation bill, passed 22-8.

The current minimum wage is $10.78 per hour.
