It was just announced that over 250,000 Minnesota employees will get a raise next year. Here are all the details. 

Starting at the beginning of next year, many Minnesota employees will get a pay bump.

Minnesota's minimum wage for most large employers will increase to $9.65 an hour. Other smaller employers will pay at least $7.87 hourly, up from $7.75

It's the first annual increase stemming from a 2014 minimum wage hike that gradually increased the state's floor wage to $9.50 hourly by 2016.

Republicans have suggested they'd like to do away with those annual hikes, calling it "government on autopilot." This according to ABC 6 News.
