ST. PAUL, MN (KDAL) - The Minnesota Senate has approved a bill that would increase the state's minimum wage to 7.75 an hour by 2015.  The House earlier passed a bill that would up the minimum wage to 9.50 an hour by 2015.  The bill will now go to a conference committee to work out the differences in the two bills before it is sent to Governor Dayton who would likely sign it.  Republicans say it would mean fewer jobs for young people and seniors.
