Fair Minimum Wage Act
I found this interesting article discussing the current federal minimum wage and the proposed Fair Minimum Wage Act. Since many of us have found ourselves working minimum wage jobs at some point in our period of unemployment I thought this might generate some discussion. So what do you think? Would $9.80 per hour be a livable wage, if employed full time, in your state? Would a full time job paying $9.80 per hour provide more income than unemployment in your state?
