President Obama has called for an increase in the federal minimum wage - to $9 an hour. In addition, President Obama has also proposed indexing the minimum wage to inflation, so it would increase when the cost of living increases. However, legislation would need to be passed by Congress for the minimum wage to be increased. Here's a list of the currentminimum wage rate for each state.
The minimum wage increased in 10 states on January 1, 2013. Here's a list of the states and the new minimum wage for each location.
The federal minimum wage remains at $7.25 per hour. The last increase was in 2009. If an employee is subject to both the state and federal minimum wage laws, the employee is entitled to the higher of the two minimum wages.
What do you think? Personally, there is no way I can support my family on my measly $7.55 an hour wage, and I work full time. We're currently facing eviction.
