MEMPHIS (AP) — Tennessee's largest county will pay its workers at least $15 an hour next year.

The Commercial Appeal reports the Shelby County Commission approved a resolution Monday night proposed by County Mayor Lee Harris that will raise the minimum wage on Jan. 1. The newspaper reports 340 current county employees will see their pay increase.

Officials said the increase won't require changes to the budget, but will come from current resources.

Shelby County's current minimum wage is $14.48 an hour.

A Memorandum of Understanding says the pay increase will last until Dec. 31, 2019, or until the county's living wage equals or exceeds $15 an hour, whichever comes sooner.
