The current federal minimum wage is $7.25 per hour. Several states have minimum wage laws that require even higher hourly wage rates. Advocates of the minimum wage, like Christian Dorsey from the Economic Policy Issue, would actually like it to be higher and argue that it’s a fairness issue for employees.
