The Alabama NAACP, Birmingham fast-food workers and other members of the community said they are planning to file a lawsuit over Alabama’s new law that recently blocked Birmingham’s efforts to raise its minimum wage.

The Birmingham City Council last year voted to raise the city’s minimum wage from $7.25 an hour, to $10.10 an hour. However, a bill passed in the State Legislature this session blocked the council’s plans.

A group pushing for a higher minimum wage is expected to announce Thursday plans to sue the State of Alabama.
