Some states have laws that fix wages at the local level. City governments can raise the minimum wage for city employees and contractors. This would give them pay that is higher than the state's minimum wage. This change would benefit workers of color since they are more likely to work in lower-paying city jobs. It could also convince other businesses to raise their minimum wage.
