Assignment- The federal minimum wage is currently $7.25 an hour. That means that covered workers nationwide must receive $7.25 an hour. The law allows states and localities to have a higher minimum wage and some places have done just that, increasing their minimum wage to $9 an hour or even an eventual $15 an hour. Is this a good idea? Do you think Texas should have a higher minimum wage? What, if any, minimum wage do you favor? What is the reasoning behind your position?
