TODAY, 29 STATES - AND WASH. DC - HAVE MINIMUM WAGES ABOVE FEDERAL MINIMUM
"All told, 29 states will exceed the federal minimum wage of $7.25 an hour at the beginning of January, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. The initial changes will enhance minimum pay by as little as a few pennies to as much as $1.25 an hour, affecting about 3.1 million employees, according to the Economic Policy Institute, a liberal research group.

"Nine states are increasing their minimum wage levels through automatic adjustments for cost-of-living expenses and other economic factors. Increases in the other states occurred through legislative or ballot changes. Over all, the new laws will cover about 60 percent of the nation’s work force, according to the Economic Policy Institute.

Where is Jamie1?

I expect her/him or it to be right on this one telling us that people working for minimum wage don't deserve a raise.

Maybe I can beat her/him or it to the punch and say they don't work hard enough or have the brains to do better.
