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

Yes, but may not be economically feasible to provide a true "living wage" without decreasing employment or raising prices (ie., there a good balance between a fair minimum wage that is appropriate but not too high.). 4 years ago from a Democrat in Richmond, VA
Each state needs to have a minimum wage based on the living costs in that state; maybe restaurants could give workers food;lower taxes would help also. 4 years ago from a Democrat in Hopewell, VA
Yes, adjusted for inflation in 4 or 5 yr increments...but No to "living wage". 4 years ago from a Republican in Midlothian, VA
Minimum wage should be adjusted gradually on the order of CPI% plus a catch up 3% until minimum wage matches the present value of the year 2000 minimum wage. 4 years ago from a Republican in Centreville, VA
