Bozeman commissioner wants minimum wage increase for city employees

June 16, 2018View for printing

One city commissioner is sparking up the conversation around minimum wage.

At the June 4 city commission meeting, Commissioner Terry Cunningham said he wanted to change city employees' minimum wage to $15 an hour.

He hopes to do this on a gradual basis, increasing the minimum wage for fiscal year 2019 to $13 an hour, $14 an hour for FY20 and $15 an hour for FY21.

Bozeman currently follows Montana's set minimum wage but they wouldn't be the first city to change that. Missoula decided to set its own wage in 2015. As of right now, it is set at $15 an hour.
