Work Step by Step

The broken-line graph shows that the minimum hourly wage (in dollars) increases to above 6.00 for the first time in mid-2008. The minimum hourly wage in mid-2008 is 6.55 (which is the y-coordinate associated with mid-2008). The minimum hourly wage in the beginning of 2008 is 5.85. Therefore, the minimum hourly wage jumped .70 during 2008 to 6.55, which is the first year with a corresponding y-coordinate above 6.00.
