A Call for Increasing Indiana’s Minimum Wage is Losing Support
Monday, January 18, 2021

INDIANAPOLIS, IN - A call by Democrats for an increase to Indiana's minimum wage isn't winning over Republicans who control the Statehouse.

Indiana Governor Eric J. Holcomb says his goal is to help workers advance beyond low-paying jobs. He is calling for more state-funded job training to assist people into better-paying careers.

The current federal minimum wage has been $7.25 an hour since 2009. Supporters of the increase propose boosting Indiana's to $10 an hour beginning in 2022 with a $1 a year increase until it reaches $15.
