Oregon Minimum Wage Up, But % Increase from 2000-2012 Lags Federal and Washington State Minimum Wage % Increase.

I have put together two graphs HERE of minimum wage comparisons for 2000-2012 including Oregon , Washington and the Federal minimum wage (used also for Idaho's minimum wage). 

While Oregon's 2012 $8.80 minimum wage remains higher than the federal minimum wage of $7.25 , the 2000-2012 increase in Oregon's minimum wage was 35% compared to a 41% increase in the federal minimum wage and a 39% increase in the Washington state minimum wage.

The DOL web page with state minimum wage history is HERE.
