“We applaud this historic move by Lexington, the first city in Kentucky to raise their minimum wage to $10.10 an hour, to help more than 30,000 workers who struggle with providing for basic needs,” Kenny Colston, communications director for the Kentucky Center for Economic Policy, said. “With now higher minimum wages in both Louisville and Lexington, we encourage state lawmakers, and other counties and institutions across Kentucky, to take up increasing the minimum wage so more Kentuckians can make ends meet.”
