The federal minimum wage is the lowest wage at which employers may pay their employees. Since July 24, 2009 the U.S. federal minimum wage has been set at $7.25 per hour. In 2014 President Obama proposed raising the federal minimum wage to $10.10 and tying it to an inflation index. The federal minimum wage applies to all federal employees including those who work on military bases, national parks and veterans working in nursing homes. See recent minimum wage news

No need to raise the minimum wage, if we would simply enforce immigration properly and deport illegals. Wages would rise naturally with less downward competitive pressure for those jobs. 4 years ago from a Republican in Southlake, TX
No, but they should put a salary cap on the highest pad employee that can't exceed 10x the lowest paid. 4 years ago from a Democrat in Marion, TX
