    As of publication, the federal minimum wage was $7.25 per hour. Each state can enact its own minimum wage laws that will supersede the federal minimum wage, but only if the state's minimum wage is higher than the federal. A rise in the federal minimum wage can cause problems for American employers that can lead to layoffs, budget cuts and other financial changes.

    Do some real research Rev. Your statement has been proven over and over to be untrue.
