During the general election, WPLN asked the candidates to be Nashville's mayor about insitituting a city minimum wage. With the field narrowed down to two, the chances of raising the minimum wage are a little better with one candidate, while the other argues raising pay will hurt the very people it’s meant to help.
At-large Metro Council member Megan Barry wasn’t the one laying out a plan to institute a city minimum wage during the general election. That was Bill Freeman, who narrowly missed making the runoff. But Barry's support is unequivocal.
