LINCOLN, Neb. — Having failed to persuade state lawmakers to increase the minimum wage in Nebraska, the senator who introduced the bill said he’s working with advocates who are considering trying to get the issue on the ballot in November.
A bill introduced by Sen. Jeremy Nordquist, D-Omaha, fell five votes short of the 25 votes needed to clear the first round of debate last week. It would have increased the minimum wage from $7.25 to $9 an hour over three years.
