10 chains that pay more than minimum wage

The federal minimum wage hasn’t increased in nearly 10 years. The last time Congress lifted the legal pay rate came in 2009 when it went from from $5.15/hour to $7.25/hour. Republican control of at least one house of Congress since then has stood in the way of further hikes.
Though a number of states have gone ahead and raised minimum wages above the federal minimum, many companies have gone even further, paying well above the legal minimum due to a tightening labor market as unemployment rates have fallen near all-time lows.
