People all over the country are talking about raising the minimum wage. Here in West Virginia the plan is to raise it at the beginning of 2015 and again a year later. The company I work for has its own minimum, that is slightly higher than the state minimum, but is even with the projected minimum. They would need to raise their minimum is order to remain competitive. But since I make several dollars more than the projected minimum, theoretically my wage could remain the same. However, if the national average is raised to $15, my income would definitely increase.
How about you? Do you think a minimum wage increase would affect you?
