I've always said it would be a mistake for Montana to raise its minimum wage unless the whole country went along. This study suggests that I am wrong. But then I'm skeptical of the source.
UPDATE: Left in the West disagrees with me, sort of.
2ND UPDATE: More states are exceeding the federal minimum wage than I thought.
3RD UPDATE: Just got a news release from Jon Tester endorsing the initiative to raise Montana's minimum wage to $6.15 an hour.
