Senate Democrats call for minimum wage hike

ALBANY -- Senate Democrats say plans to raise the minimum wage aren't happening quickly enough.

Last year, the state legislature passed a bill to slowly increase the minimum wage over the course of 3 years. The first stage took effect this year, increasing the way to $8 an hour.

But now, Democratic lawmakers say $8 is not enough. They want $9, starting next year with automatic increases every time the rate of inflation goes up.

A source for the Senate Republicans said earlier this year that they had no interest in increasing the wage again.
