(Minimum wage may be considered a technological advantage and a privilege.)
Individual states continue to develop their own laws and regulations controlling wages and consequently affecting the federal economy as a whole.

Most people seem to be in agreement with the fact that there should be a raise in the minimum wage.
Minimum wage differs between tipped and non-tipped jobs (ie: someone who works at McDonalds vs. a waitress at Chili's)
Many tipped jobs would profit from the new raise. The current minimum wage salary for a bartender or waitress is $2.13, but what the job's income relies on is the tips from customers.
The raise for tipped workers such as waiters could cause other parts of the buisness to suffer.
There are some people who believe that the three dollar pay raise is not sufficient enough and should be pushed even higher
