A group of House Democrats three days into the legislative session filed a bill to increase the minimum hourly wage. House File 2011, if passed, would raise the hourly minimum wage to $7.75 starting July 1, 2014, $8.25 beginning January 1, 2015, $9.00 starting July 1, 2015, and $10.10 January 1, 2016.
