MAPS IN THE NEWS:
This map from Statista, using data from MIT's "living wage calculator," shows the gap between the minimum wage in a state and the living wage for a single worker with no children. Hawaii has the largest gap -- $9.33 -- because of the state's extremely high cost of living; Washington has the smallest gap, presumably because of the state's relatively high minimum wage ($13.69 when this study was done and $14.49 as of earlier this month). cdn.statcdn.com/Infographic/images/normal/25574.jpeg
