(article continues below)
Wyoming is one of 45 states that have enacted minimum wage laws. The minimum wage in Wyoming is $2.10 less than the current Federal minimum wage rate of $7.25.
Despite Wyoming's low minimum wage, most workers receive the Federal minimum wage of $7.25 an hour because the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) supercedes the state minimum wage.
Efforts were made by Democratic legislators in 2014 to raise Wyoming's minimum wage from $5.15 to $9 per hour, but there was not enough support to move forward.
In 2012, the US Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that there are 9,000 minimum wage workers in Wyoming, equivalent to 5.20 percent of the hourly workforce.
