A bill to raise Indiana‘s minimum wage is currently awaiting a hearing in the General Assembly.
Supporters of the increase rallied at the Statehouse on Wednesday, saying an increase would pull some families out of poverty.
However, opponents worry a forced increase in the minimum wage will be a job-killer and could force some businesses to eliminate workers or even close their doors.
