Steve Sisolak on Jobs
Raise minimum wage from $7.25
Too many Nevadans are making too little. That needs to change and it needs to start by giving Nevadans a well-earned raise. Even as our economy improves, too many folks are still working two jobs to get by--even more are living paycheck to paycheck.
That's why I am committed to working with the legislature--and the business and labor communities--to raise the minimum wage in our state. It's impossible for an individual, let alone a family, to live on $7.25 an hour.

Raise minimum wage to $10, but $15 is too much
Q: Raise the NV minimum wage?
Adam Laxalt (R): No. "Will reduce employment opportunities for Nevadans and hurt workers by reducing hours, reducing benefits, and reducing on-the-job training."
Steve Sisolak (D): Yes. Increase to at least $10 an hour. Reluctant to move immediately to $15, because "it will put small businesses out of business."
