Minimum Wage Ballot Measures The guests talked about ballot measures in six states to raise the minimum wage above the federal level of $5.15 per hour. Twenty-three states already have a minimum wage above the federal rate. Paul Hartgen talked about the initiative in his state of Nevada to raise the minimum wage to $6.15 per hour.

The guests responded to telephone calls and electronic mail. close
