House Votes to End Subminimum Wage

The U.S. House of Representatives voted 231 to 199 Thursday to pass the Raise the Wage Act, a bill chiefly designed to increase the federal minimum wage to $15 per hour by 2025.
Tucked inside the legislation, however, is a provision that would phase out subminimum wage for workers with disabilities.
