Augusta, Maine

Bill would raise Maine’s minimum wage


Maine’s Democrat-controlled Legislature approved a bill last week that would raise the state’s minimum wage in stages from the current $7.50 an hour to $9 by 2016, then raise it annually to account for inflation. Governor Paul LePage, a Republican, is reviewing the bill and has not taken action, said spokeswoman Adrienne Bennett. (AP)
