courant.com | House Votes To Increase Minimum Wage In '06

"Among an estimated 39,000 workers receiving the minimum wage, 85 percent are adults and two-thirds are women, lawmakers said. That represents about 2.1 percent of the state's total workforce of 1.79 million and 4.4 percent of hourly employees, according to the legislature's nonpartisan research office."

How did the advoates of the raise define "adult"? Does it encompass teenagers (defintion: workers whose age is between 13 and 19, inclusive.)?
