Louisville's Minimum Wage Hike Could Be An Example Through the South: "The first phase of Louisville’s minimum wage increase went into effect Wednesday.
This change will affect thousands of workers in the city, according to some estimates. But economic groups say the wage hike could also have a sweeping impact throughout the American South.
“This is a big day,” said Kenny Colston, communications director for the Kentucky for Center Economic Policy.
Colston’s group estimates the hike will affect about 45,000 people in Louisville. Besides that, he said Louisville will likely open the door for wage increases statewide."
