Texas minimum wage of $7.25/hour is the same as the federal minimum wage. Texas failure to increase its minimum wage depresses the vibrancy of its economy because so many of its workers are not receiving a fair living wage. The result is less money being placed into the market by purchases which would otherwise flow to the benefit of businesses which support Texas economy. Paying a fair living wage is good for the employer, the employee and the businesses which serve both the market and the supply chain. Support increasing the minimum wage in Texas. Dallas Countys effort to require all persons wanting to enter into a contract with Dallas County to pay a minimum wage of $10.10 hour is a modest, but important start. Dallas Countys efforts are being challenged - communicate with the Dallas County Commissioners, the Texas representatives and senators in Austin, and incoming governor, Greg Abbott, to push for adoption of a statewide minimum wage of at least $10.10 hour and alternatively to make clear that any Texas County may adopt a rule or ordinance requiring its contractors to pay employees no less than $10.10 hour.
