BOSTON (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Massachusetts is now on track to have the highest state minimum wage in the country.

Lawmakers gave final approval Thursday to legislation that will gradually raise the minimum wage to $11 per hour by 2017--that's up from $8.

A spokeswoman says Governor Deval Patrick is expected to sign it into law soon.

The City of Seattle will still offer the highest minimum wage anywhere in the country, at $15 per hour.
