DOVER, Del. (AP) — The start of a new work week comes with the promise of more money for low-wage workers in Delaware.
Under a bill approved by lawmakers last year, the state’s minimum wage increases on Monday from $7.75 per hour to $8.25 per hour.
The chief sponsor of that legislation, Sen. Robert Marshall, says the wage increase will help people who are struggling to get by.
But Marshall, a Wilmington Democrat, says more needs to be done. He introduced legislation earlier this year that would increase Delaware’s minimum wage in four 50-cent increments to $10.25 per hour by 2019.
