In 2005, our Legislature increased the minimum wage to $6.75/ hour. In January, 2007, it will go to $7.25/ hour. Congress recently killed a federal minimum wage increase and has not passed a minimum wage increase in 10 years (currently $5.15/ hour). In that time Congress voted themselves nine raises totaling nearly $35,000 a year--more than three times the $10,712 entire yearly earnings of a full-time minimum wage worker.

State tax dollars, when available and practical, should be used to create jobs and stabilize our state tax base.
