Minimum wage


#1

what is the minimum wage where you are? I hear lot of you say your pay crew a lot of money. here in clover sc minimum wage is $5.75 a hour. gas is $3.10 per gallon. Is gas and minimum wage the same where you are?

Hello,
I would assume that the national minimum wage is the same all over the country since it is a federal item. That being said the company I work at pays new hire laborers about 10 to 12 dollars an hour.

I always thought it was a National Standard across the entire country, but I just checked and it is not.

Hello,

Thanks for pointing that out Ed I thought that it was also.

Well, I am never to old to learn something new.

I thought it was pretty cool to see too. I never realised that some states had no minimum wage laws. I just figured it was some hacks justifying how cheaply they can get away with paying, or not paying their workers.
