Texas Democrats push bills to raise state minimum wage
  • HB 937 proposes to increase the hourly minimum wage in Texas from $7.25 to $10.10 over five years.
  • Several other bills have been filed to devolve minimum wage management to local governments or increase the minimum wage to $15, in line with some of the more ambitious proposals across the nation.
  • The minimum wage was last changed statewide in 2009, though recent polls indicate that more than half of Texans support raising it.
