A step in the right direction, you must admit.

Better that than some people in OH, and KS whose residents have a State minimum wage lower than the Federal minimum wage...

Does the state amount take precedence? Or did they just not bother to increase it for donkeys years?

I don't think it works like that in the US (not at a Federal level at least).

There's exempt and non-exempt employees and FLSA. You can read oodles about those three topics and learn so much about employment practices and law in the USA.

Great. The cost of living in FL has gone up quite a tad the last few years.

Santa Fe has a minimum wage law: Now at $8.50/hr. Goes up to $9.50/hr next year, and $10.50/hr in 2008.

It would be a virtual impossibility to live where I am in South Florida on $6.15 per hour. That wouldnt even pay the rent on a 1 bed apartment in the shitty end of town.
