It's time to take a trip down memory lane, and into the deep vault of your mind — and your bank account.
Remember your first job? Perhaps you were washing dishes or flipping burgers. How much did you earn?
If it was the '60s, and you might have been making $1.60 an hour — the federal minimum wage in 1968. If you worked in California, you would have been getting 5 cents more.
Today, the federal minimum wage is $7.25 an hour, and Rep. George Miller wants it to be raised to $10.10.
California's bottom line is $8 an hour, which has stayed steady since January 2008. The state with the lowest minimum wage is Wyoming at $5.15 an hour. Washington State, meanwhile, pays its employees the highest rate in the country — $9.19 an hour.
Travelling back to the 1930s when the first minimum wage was established in the U.S. — the rate was 25 cents an hour.
