State rep attempts a minimum wage hike

The debate continues over minimum wage which has many divided across the Commonwealth.

Monday, State Representative Patty Kim held a public hearing, laying out her plan to increase it to $15 an hour.

She tells CBS-21 that under her proposal, it would happen over the course of six years and differentiate between small and large businesses.

At this point, the minimum wage sits at $7 and twenty-five cents an hour.

Critics argue increasing it could end up costing people jobs.
