The Changing Dynamics of Minimum Wage Legislation
The most recent federal minimum wage increase took effect in 2009, bringing the minimum hourly wage for most non-exempt workers to $7.25. Despite calls to increase it as high as $15, the federal minimum wage is unlikely to change any time soon given the goals of the current administration.
How much does it matter? The ComplyRight Minimum Wage Monitor is intended to help answer that question. It shows the current minimum wage laws across the United States with a historical view of how updates have changed the map over the past four years.
