Texas Democrat​ introduces bill to raise the state’s minimum wage to $15 per hour

A Texas lawmaker wants to increase the minimum wage in Texas from $7.25 an hour to $15.00 an hour.

Representative Ron Reynolds, a Democrat, filed House Bill 194 and if approved Texas will see the $15.00 minimum wage increase beginning September 1, 2019.

Reynolds said raising the minimum wage will put more money into the pockets of hard-working Texans and is a critical step in creating an economy that works for everyone, not just the wealthy few.
