Community groups and advocates in St. Paul are expected to join nationwide efforts Monday for a rally on raising the minimum wage.
Attendees plan to gather at the McDonald's on Marion Street and University Avenue at 2 p.m. before moving to St. Paul's city hall at 4 p.m.
St. Paul Mayor Melvin Carter said raising the minimum wage to $15 per hour is one of his priorities.
City officials are currently studying the potential impact of a wage increase.
The city of Minneapolis approved a $15 minimum wage ordinance in July last year. In February, a district court judge ruled in favor of the city in a challenge to its ordinance.
