The federal minimum wage trumps the state so it doesn't matter if the state's is less than the federal or nonexistent. Sad to see they're raising it again. =( When are they going to stop doing stupid get the vote now things instead of what is in the best interest of people long term? We don't need more inflation or unemployment!

$2.65?! how is that legal? is that for service positions with tips/commissions? to those who are interested, i highly recommend the "Minimum Wage" episode of Morgan Spurlock's documentary series, 30 Days.
