Minimum Wage

 

Many Kentuckians are working for inadequate wages. We must ensure that no full-time worker lives in poverty. The current Kentucky minimum wage is $7.25 and was last changed in 2008.  This converts to $290.00 per week or $15,080.00 per year.  Raising the minimum wage will help reverse the growing wage gap, reduce poverty and spur demand. Rob supports raising the minimum wage to help lift families out of poverty and to join the middle class.
