DENVER – Colorado's 57,000 minimum wage workers will see a small spike in their paychecks this year. Wages went up by 11 cents to $7.36 an hour.
A measure was passed in 2006 to adjust the minimum wage amounts each year based on Colorado's inflation rate.
"Any dollar helps," said Rich Jones, Director of Policy with the Bell Policy Center in Denver.
Jones says the small increase will benefit people in the minimum wage bracket.
