ROANOKE, Va – WDBJ7
The cost of living keeps going up – and for minimum wage workers, it’s tough to make ends meet.
Now, one Virginia lawmaker wants to change that. Sen. Jim Webb is co-sponsoring legislation to raise the federal minimum wage by two dollars.
Right now, minimum wage is $7.25/ hour. That equals a yearly salary of $15,080.
