The bill, to be introduced by Sen. Michelle Stennett, D-Ketchum and co-sponsored by Sens. Cherie Buckner-Webb, D-Boise, and Elliot Werk, D-Boise, would increase the hourly wage to $9.75 over the course of two years and then tie it to the CPI thereafter.

    Why wait for two years, and why only 9.75 and not 10.10 like the rest of the country. I am ashamed of the thought of Idaho's workers waitting for two year to reach 9.75 in two years they should be getting more than 9.75. Is this the best you can do if so get out of the way and let someone with a heart have your job.
