Minimum wage plays big role in state elections

This month's elections may see more states adopt minimum-wage increases as they tire of waiting for Congressional action. After the ballots are counted, more than half of the states could be sitting on minimum-wage levels above the federal $5.15 per-hour threshold.

In 2006 alone, 10 states have approved increases in their minimum wages. On Nov. 7, voters in another six states will decide if they should push their state minimums higher. In many cases, those measures include automatic increases to keep pace with inflation. The six states with wage increases on the ballot: Arizona, Colorado, Missouri, Montana, Nevada and Ohio.
