The minimum wage in Oregon is about to get a whole lot higher.

On Thursday, Oregon lawmakers approved legislation that makes the state’s minimum wage the highest in the United States. The state’s Democratic governor, Kate Brown, said in a statement that she intends to sign it into law.

“I started this conversation last fall, bringing stakeholders together to craft a workable proposal; one that gives working families the much-needed wage boost they need, and addresses challenges for businesses and rural economies presented by the two impending ballot measures,” Governor Brown said.
