The Gazette: Branstad willing to consider higher minimum wage

Excerpt: Gov. Terry Branstad said Thursday he would consider an increase in the state minimum wage if such a bill lands on his desk this legislative session. In an interview, Branstad noted that a number of states recently have increased their minimum wages, and that he signed the bill in 1989 that created Iowa’s minimum wage then at $3.35 per hour.
