Minimum Wage Bill blows out of committee and onto Senate floor

Deschutes County lumped in with Valley/Eugene rate

Deschutes County lumped in with Valley/Eugene rate

In a bold move to provide a large boost to Oregon’s minimum wage, Senate democrats quickly passed a new minimum wage bill out of committee and onto the floor for debate and eventual vote.

If eventually signed into law, and Governor Brown said she would, the minimum wage in the Portland Metro would be $14.75 an hour, in Lane and Deschutes Counties it would rise to $13.50 and hour and $12.50 everywhere else. The minimum wage in Oregon is currently $9.25 an hour, two dollars higher than the federal minimum wage.
