(St. Paul, MN) -- There is no agreement yet among DFL leaders in the Minnesota House and Senate on increasing the state's minimum wage. The sticking point is whether or not to make future increases in the wage automatic and tied to inflation. The House wants to include that, while Senate leaders call it a "non-starter." Supporters of the increase want to hike the wage to nine-dollars-50-cents an hour by 2016.
