Democrats in the House and Senate rolled out a proposal on Wednesday to more than double the federal minimum wage to $15 per hour by 2024.

“A $15 federal minimum wage affirms the bedrock idea of fairness in our country: that hard work deserves a decent wage,” Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said in backing the proposal.
