CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — The acting secretary of labor is scheduled to visit Charlotte to discuss President Barack Obama’s proposal to raise the minimum wage.

Acting Labor Secretary Seth Harris is slated to hold a round-table discussion Wednesday with low-wage workers and advocates about the proposal. The meeting will be held at First Baptist Church-West.

Obama has proposed raising the federal minimum wage to $9 an hour from $7.25.

Local workers will share their thoughts about how a minimum wage increase would benefit them and their families.
