A group of black Alabama legislators joins a federal lawsuit alleging that racial bias fueled a state law blocking Birmingham from implementing a local minimum wage. The complaint filed in U-S District Court today says the Alabama Legislative Black Caucus and several black state lawmakers have joined in the lawsuit against the state of Alabama, the city of Birmingham and Attorney General Luther Strange. The lawsuit alleges Republican-backed legislation blocking Birmingham from establishing a minimum hourly wage of $10.10 was racially motivated.
