Let’s look at minimum wage:
📌 Minimum wage is $7.25/hour.
📌 Minimum wage hasn’t risen since 2009 (that’s almost 14 YEARS)!
📌 Minimum wage is $15,080/year.
Average incomes by state:
💵 District of Columbia = $88,702/year – Highest
💵 Massachusetts = $81,123/year – Second highest
💵 Mississippi = $41,776/year – Lowest
💵 Virginia = $44,947/year – Second lowest
By keeping the Federal Minimum Wage low ($7.25/hour), it’s allowing employers to offer unlivable wages!
