Biden raises minimum wage to $15 per hour

President of the United States, Joe Biden, has raised the minimum wage of those working on federal contracts to $15 per hour.

The American President took to his verified Twitter handle to inform all workers on US soil of the development.


“I believe no one should work full time and still live in poverty. That’s why today, I raised the minimum wage to $15 an hour for people working on federal contracts,” he said.

For comparison, the minimum wage per month for workers in Nigeria is N30,000, which is the equivalent of a paltry $66.
