ST. PAUL, Minn (KFGO AM) -- State lawmakers are back at the Minnesota Capitol tomorrow to begin the 2014 legislative session.

One of the hot issues will be a minimum wage increase.

Democrats hold majorities in both the House and Senate and will try to resolve their differences which stalled the bill last year.

House Republican Leader Kurt Daudt warns a minimum wage increase is not fair to the people who will lose jobs.

House Speaker, Democrat Paul Thissen says the bottom line is that unemployment is among the lowest in the country in Minnesota, because we have made investments in education and in job creation.
