The House passed legislation to gradually raise the federal minimum wage to $15 per hour, following through on a key Democratic campaign promise and ending a six-month struggle within the caucus.
The roughly party-line vote comes after months of behind-the-scenes jockeying between progressives and centrists to shape the plan and delivers a much-needed policy win for the party.
