TAHLEQUAH – The Cherokee Nation’s incoming administration plans to raise the tribe’s minimum wage from $9.50 to $11 an hour. The surprise announcement was made Aug. 7 at the W.W. Hastings Hospital outpatient clinic. More than 100 employees affected by the change showed up, but were unaware of the planned pay increase until Principal Chief-elect Chuck Hoskin Jr. revealed it during a group photo.
