Florida voted Tuesday to gradually hike the state's minimum wage to $15 per hour, joining a growing list of states and municipalities in taking the step.
Florida becomes the eighth state to approve a $15-an-hour minimum wage, and the second-most populous to do so.
For every year after that, the minimum wage would rise by $1 an hour until it hits $15 in 2026.
Labor advocates have long argued to raise minimum pay to what they call a living wage.
Still, many businesses in Florida have argued against increasing the minimum wage.
