Are your employees making a living wage? 💰💰💰💰

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!
