After 20 years, Kansas finally passes minimum wage raise

Back in February I wrote about Kansas’ paltry minimum wage of $2.65 per hour and how it hadn’t been raised in 20 years. A minimum-wage bill was making its way through the Kansas Senate, and experts weren’t giving it much chance of

passing.

Well, School-House Rock style, the bill managed to get out of committee, get passed in the Kansas Senate and then overwhelmingly passed in the Kansas House. Now, after tweaks, it will wind up on Governor Sebelius’ desk.
