Across the U.S the minimum wages are $5.15 in Wyoming to $9.50 in DC,
average $8.00. Eve Montes in California pick grapes for $9.50 an hour and she
can't make enough to feed her family. Montes is part of a growing economic problem
in Calif. low-wage workers are getting poorer.
My question, why not move? A minimum wage of $8.00 would go a lot further in Arkansas then
California. If $15.00 minimum wage is passed here it California, in 2-5 years it will be same for
those folks. That gap will never close.
For you folks that live in another country, what are the minimum wage in your area, and has
the gap widen today.
