Updated State Minimum Wage Table

Accompanying a new EPI issue brief on what a new federal minimum wage means for states, there is now an updated table that shows how the federal increase will impact minimum wage workers state-by-state.

Economic analyst Liana Fox examines minimum wage at the federal and state level, highlighting a table that looks ahead by increments to show how minimum wages in each state will change until 2009, when the federal wage reaches $7.25 an hour for all workers.
