Sen. Mark Pryor Launches Online Petition to Gather Support for Min. Wage Increase

KNWA -- Mark Pryor has started an online petition aimed at raising voter support for a state minimum wage increase.

Earlier this month, the U.S. Senator announced his support to raise the wage which stands now at $6.25 an hour. Pryor and other proponents would like to to see it raised to $8.50 an hour by 2017. If voters pass it, the increase would gradually happen over a three year period.

The public petition is being run through the senator's website.
