BOARDMAN

U.S. Sen Sherrod Brown plans to promote his legislation calling for an increase in the federal minimum wage to $10.10 per hour Monday at the Yankee Kitchen restaurant on Market Street.

Phil and Eli Raptis, owners of the restaurant, and one of the restaurant’s servers, will join Brown to call for passage of the Fair Minimum Wage Act, according to Brown’s office.

The legislation would raise the federal minimum wage to $10.10 an hour in three steps and provide the first minimum wage increase to tipped employees in more than 20 years.
