Maine’s Minimum Wage May Go From $7.50 to $8.50 an Hour

Money

Maine legislators are discussing bumping the minimum wage up from $7.50 an hour to $8.50 an hour. If the bill passes, the dollar increase or raise would go in effect on October 1, 2013 and would adjust starting in October 2014 for inflation and other living increases.

Maybe I should be happy I make above minimum wage, but I must say a raise for those making minimum wage is really a pay cut for me unless my employer just bumps my salary a dollar an hour to compensate. How do you feel about a minimum wage increase? I feel for those making under $10 an hour and happy they’re getting an increase but the increase may not solve any poverty issues if it could just increase the prices on goods and services.

Wow, that sounds like a republican talking which I assure you I’m not.
