Florida's Minimum Wage Up 6 Cents Wednesday

The state's minimum wage goes up 6 cents Wednesday.

It goes up to $7.31 an hour, affecting about 188,000 people in Florida. Each minimum wage worker will get an extra $188 a year.

The decision increases the payroll by $28 million.

Gov. Rick Scott was disappointed in the decision, but will not appeal it, said spokesman Brian Burgess.
