US Senate to vote on minimum wage proposals

The minimum wage debate is set to shift this week from Wisconsin to Washington. Milwaukee and Madison have raised the minimum wage recently with La Crosse due to consider it. The cities passed the increases in hopes that the state legislature would consider an increase in the state's minimum wage.

The minimum wage increase before the Senate will come in the form of an amendment to the bankruptcy bill. In the House of Representatives, conservative legislators like Wisconsin's own Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner are opposing any amendments to the bankruptcy bill in order to fast track its passage, get it to the president and away from public scrutiny.
