State Senator Robert Marshall, D- Wilmington West, cites the increasing numbers of people with low-wage jobs as well as a rising rate of poverty as the reasons for his measure.

The minimum wage increase would be phased in on June 1st of each year, starting at 50-cents and rising to $1.20 an hour in the final four years through 2023.
