As legislators in Delaware returned to the state house in Dover last week, they were met by a group of labor activists demanding that the legislators increase the state minimum wage to $15/hour. Fight for $15, the advocacy group funded by the Service Employees International Union, (SEIU), held a rally at the state house seeking to drum up support for increasing the state wage. Currently, the minimum wage in Delaware is set at $9.25/hour, having just increased from $8.75 last October. Furthermore, the legislature is scheduled this month to debate another increase that would hike the state minimum to $11 per hour this spring and by an additional $1/hour each year thereafter until it reaches $15/hour in 2024.
