LA CROSSE – At the AFL-CIO Biennial Conference in La Crosse Tuesday, Gov. Jim Doyle called on Congress to follow Wisconsin’s lead and raise the federal minimum wage for hardworking families.
In 2004, Gov. Doyle brought together business and labor leaders to achieve a minimum wage increase for Wisconsin workers. Starting in June 2005, the minimum wage in Wisconsin has gone up twice.
The state minimum wage is now $1.35 more than the federal minimum wage.
