USATODAY.com – Minimum wage laws multiply in states
This year’s election could bring a watershed in the nearly 70-year history of the federal minimum wage: For the first time, a majority of states could require higher pay than the federal rate of $5.15 an hour.

This year, legislatures in 10 states have enacted laws mandating a higher minimum than federal law requires, bringing 23 states and the District of Columbia above that threshold.
