Brain Game: An Earnings Statement
Today's mentalfloss.com Brain Game Tuesday Test Time challenge needs only the name of a U.S. state. But will you name the correct one?
When I got my first "real" job (the night shift at a Hardee's restaurant in Athens, Georgia) the minimum wage was $2.85 an hour, and work was 20 miles away, so my take-home pay was downright puny. Things have improved since then, but some places still have it better than others.

Washington. The state of Washington requires a minimum wage of $9.04 per hour, more than anywhere else in the United States.
