No minimum wage increase in Minnesota
ST. PAUL - Gov. Tim Pawlenty vetoed an increase in Minnesota's minimum wage Thursday.
Pawlenty complained that the bill raises wages too much and that workers who receive tips, such as waiters and waitresses, should have a lower minimum wage.
The bill would have raised the minimum wage for large Minnesota companies to $6.75 an hour this summer, up 60 cents from current law. It would go up another $1 next year.
