Wage increases

Minimum-wage earners in Kentucky are getting a 70-cent pay increase this week.

The state minimum wage increased from $6.55 to $7.25 an hour today (Wednesday), earlier than a federal minimum wage increase of the same amount set for July 24.

Alinda Batt told the Bowling

Green Daily News that the wage increase comes just in time. Last week she was trying to get her electricity turned back on after her service was cut off for non payment.
