itslef said: In Maryland, minimum is $7.25. I used to feel like $10 was a step up, but having worked at $10 for the past 2 years, it’s not much of a step at all. In Illinois, I know the minimum is actually $8-something, but cost of living is so much cheaper.
I just checked (how lazy am I to ask you all but not report back on HI?) and we’re $7.25 here too. That’s the federal minimum. I remember when I used to work for I think $5.25 in Ohio, but that was almost 10 years ago. I guess this isn’t rocket science, but it’s something I hadn’t considered for awhile, although I’ve wondered it frequently.
“No minimum wage law” isn’t what it sounded like at first to me.
South Carolina has no minimum wage law. That means eligible employees in South Carolina are entitled to either federal minimum wage (currently $7.25 per hour) or any local (city or county) minimum wage law that is on the books, whichever wage rate is higher.
