Minimum Wage Rates Across the Country

Here's the intensity of the jobs destroying measure, across the country.

Note:  Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, independent of Vermont, introduced a bill  on Wednesday that would raise the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour across the country.

Former Gov. Martin O’Malley of Maryland, also seeking the Democratic presidential nomination, has also voiced support for a $15 federal minimum wage.

Hillary has not, though, she told fast-food workers in Detroit last month, “I want to be your champion.” But she stopped short of endorsing a $15 hourly minimum, and she has come under attack from the left wing of her party for not doing so.
