DENVER (AP) -- Minimum-wage workers in Colorado are getting a raise in the new year.
Under a measure approved by voters in November's election, the state's minimum wage rose to $9.30 an hour starting Sunday, up by about a dollar from last year.
It will continue to increase by 90 cents each year until it reaches $12 an hour in January 2020.
Colorado is one of 19 states increasing its minimum wage in 2017. Massachusetts and Washington have the highest new minimum wages in the country at $11 an hour.
