(St. Paul, MN) -- Governor Mark Dayton is giving the lowest paid Minnesotans more money. He signed the first increase in the state's minimum wage in a decade into law yesterday at the state Capitol. The first increase to eight-dollars an hour takes effect on August 1, and will go up to nine-dollars-50-cents by August 1, 2016. Future increases will be tied to inflation.
