Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
On Tuesday, the first increase in the federal minimum wage increase in nearly 10 years took effect. The federal minimum wage is now $5.85 per hour, up from $5.15 per hour. In May, Congress finalized a law which would raise the federal minimum wage in three stages -- the first of which came Tuesday -- to $7.25 per hour over the next two years. According to the Associated Press, Tuesday's increase "ends the longest span without a federal minimum wage increase since the pay floor was enacted in 1938."
