Lawmakers to consider minimum wage

Rep. Kurt Daudt
Rep. Kurt Daudt

ST.PAUL, Minn. (KFGO AM) -- The 2014 Minnesota Legislature opens one week from today, and it's looking like Democrats will try again to pass a minimum wage increase.

They weren't able to agree on it last year.

House Republican Minority Leader Kurt Daudt argues a better approach is to create an environment where businesses provide more job opportunities.

Democrats say there's no evidence that a minimum wage increase will result in job losses.

Republicans want to repeal three business-to-business taxes the DFL-controlled legislature passed last session.
