New bill proposes raising minimum wage to $10 next year, $15 by 2021
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – A state senator has authored a bill that would raise Indiana’s minimum wage to $15 an hour by 2021.
Sen. Frank Mrvan (D-1) introduced the bill in the Statehouse at the beginning of January.
Senate Bill 121 proposes that minimum wage will increase from $7.25 to $10 next year.
After June 2020, it would increase to $13. The following year, minimum wage would increase to $15 an hour under the bill.
In 2022, the state would increase minimum wage at the same percentage as any increase in the Consumer Price Index for the preceding year.
