Minimum wages in US – Some States act (A map)

Odds remain low that Congress will raise the $7.25 federal minimum wage anytime soon.

But the issue will be revisited in coming days as the Senate takes up a bill to increase it to $10.10 an hour. And President Obama and congressional Democrats plan to push the issue on the campaign trail ahead of the November mid-term elections.

In the meantime, many states have made moves to raise their own minimum wages over the next year.
