    Default Women and the Minimum Wage, State by State

    I know your not women but this is rather interesting just to see how your state treats the minimum wage issue.

    The minimum wage is falling short for millions of Americans — especially for women, who represent nearly two-thirds of minimum wage workers across the country, and at least half of minimum wage workers in every state. Today, the federal minimum wage is just $7.25 per hour, and full-time earnings of $14,500 a year leave a family of three thousands of dollars below the federal poverty line. Nineteen states and the District of Columbia currently have minimum wages above the federal level, but in every state, the minimum wage leaves a full-time worker with two children at or below the poverty level.

    Yet our politicians drag their feet to stall any attempt to raise the standard in this country.
    Look at the other civilized countries with higher minimum wage then ours.

    THIS week the British government announced that, from October, the minimum wage will jump by 12p to £6.31 ($9.66) an hour.
    Interesting, yet informative.

    That chart says it all! This is why I keep saying America cannot remain a super power when we can't pay our people decently (and those are the ones who can even find a job), can't fix our infrastructure and cannot afford to send our kids to college.
