Rep. Ron Reynolds filed House Bill 194 to increase minimum wage to $15.00 an hour, up from the current $7.25 an hour.

“Raising the minimum wage in Texas to $15.00 an hour will put more money into the pockets of hard-working Texans and is a critical step in creating an economy that works for everyone, not just the wealthy few,” said Reynolds in a release Tuesday.
