People protest for a $15 minimum wage in New York City in 2017.

Nebraska voters are calling for the state's minimum wage to increase. The "Omaha World Herald" reports that a measure increasing the state's minimum wage had received more than 60-percent approval as of late last night. The measure calls for the state's minimum wage to gradually increase to 15-dollars-per-hour by 2026. Nebraska's minimum wage has been nine-dollars-per-hour since 2016.
