The Fight for 15 is heading to the Assembly floor.

Nevada Assemblyman William McCurdy II, D-Las Vegas, introduced a bill Monday that would incrementally raise the state's minimum wage to $15 an hour.

The proposed legislation would raise the minimum wage by $1.25 per year until 2022.

Nearly 300,000 Nevada workers would see a raise if the bill passes.

It is the second minimum wage bill to be introduced this Legislative session. That proposal would raise it to $11 an hour.
