Senate Majority Leader Wants Higher Minimum Wage

Posted: Updated:

A prominent democrat, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, said he's aiming for a minimum wage hike.

Reid made the announcement following a closed meeting on the issue with democrats on Capitol Hill.

Most republicans are expected to oppose the increase and offer a job creation proposal instead.

Congress last approved a minimum wage hike in 2007. The current minimum hourly rate is $7.25.
