Those who make minimum wage are likely most grateful for overtime pay — if they have the time, that is. President Obama's new overtime rules might make us wonder how states compare when it comes to minimum wage.
The federal rate is $7.25 per hour (and did not increase for 2017), so if a state's minimum wage is less or if the state has no minimum wage law, that federal rate applies.
The District of Columbia has the highest minimum wage at $11.50 per hour and 21 states have the lowest, matching the federal rate.
