Minimum wage increase: not 2012, maybe 2013

by on
in Employment Law,Human Resources

President Obama’s push to raise the minimum wage from its current $7.25 per hour to $9.50 will likely fall on deaf ears in Congress this year. The president also wants to index future automatic increases in the minimum wage to the in­­flation rate, an idea that Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney actually supports.

Ten states already link their minimum wage hikes to inflation. Currently, 18 states have a minimum wage that’s higher than the federal rate. Find all state minimum wage figures at www.dol.gov/whd/minwage/america.htm.

no dont that will give everyone that is working at higher than minimum wage a decreesed pay. when everything else goes up in price. making it even harder for everyone to make it. needless to say if i work in a specailised job just making 10.50 an hour it would be pointless to stay at that job and then try to get a job doing less work at minimum wage.

i believe that min wage should be increased….. im a 22 year old liveing at home paying a 100 dallors a month in rent because my part time job with the company i work for pays me 7.80 and hour to pull carts. im lucky if i get 30 hours a week and i travel a half hour to work each way…. just so i can have a job….. i barely make 320$ on a bad week i would like to get a small appartment and this increase would really help me to save my money and get on my feet
