Abstract

In a diverse nation of 50 states policy differences are commonplace. One of the biggest and most contentious policy variations is the minimum wage. Some states have simply left it at the federal level while others have drastically increased it. This study looks to dissect economic, political, and historical reasons that lead dozens of states to raise the minimum wage and cause other states to leave it alone.
