Legislative leaders from New York, New Jersey and Connecticut are pushing for a higher minimum wage in their states.
The leaders seek to increase the minimum wage to about $10 an hour.
The minimum wage in New York and New Jersey is $7.25 an hour, compared to $8.25 an hour in Connecticut.
New York Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver and his counterparts, Speaker Sheila Oliver in New Jersey and Speaker Chris Donovan in Connecticut, say the minimum wage has been stagnant for far too long.
They say the wage can no longer keep working people out of poverty.
Silver, a Manhattan Democrat, is making raising the minimum wage a major goal for the current legislative session.
