Strimling wants to raise minimum wage

Welcome back, everyone.

In a few minutes, the state's Labor Committee will commence a public hearing on a bill that would increase Maine's mimimum wage from $7.00 to $8.40 over the next two years. State senator and congressional candidate Ethan Strimling is sponsoring the bill, and it's a move that is sure to shore up his traditional Dem base.

You can listen to the hearing here.
