Republican lawmakers agreed Thursday to ask voters to increase the state’s minimum wage — but in a way that businesses actually want.

HCR 2014 given preliminary Senate approval would require employers to pay their workers at least $9.50 an hour by 2020. By contrast, the current voter-approved law, with annual inflation adjustments, might have boosted the current $8.05 minimum to perhaps close to $9.

But it’s not that the GOP lawmakers actually think that higher wages are a good idea.
