State Senate Oks Hike To Minimum Wage; GOP Amendments To Limit Increase Voted Down, The Sun Chronicle, 11/20/2013
“The Massachusetts Senate has voted to raise the state’s minimum wage from $8 to $11 per hour by 2016 and tie subsequent increases to inflation. . . State Sen. Richard Ross, R-Wrentham, was one of the seven who voted against it. He said he could support a smaller increase in the minimum wage, but not $3. The jump in the wage will hurt small businesses, he said.”
