408: Minimum Wage Is Complicated in the United States

Hey, I'm Chris.

I'm a former Analyst, Podcaster, and Producer. My goal is to help you understand your finances better in about the time it takes to make a bag of popcorn!

When do you think the Federal minimum wage was last changed?

If you guessed over a decade, you’d be right, which is insane. Unlike other government numbers, the federal minimum wage is not adjusted based on inflation and so we’ve been sitting at the same number since 2009. So on today’s episode, I’m talking about the history of the federal minimum wage and what States across the country are doing to counteract that low federal number.
