    It's 37 cents an hour more than Australia's. Courtesy of Fox News.

    Yes, and both our countries are perfectly identical in all other ways, aren't they?

    I would wager that the differences in economies and priorities for those involved will affect how much this extra amount will mean.

    Plus, the relationship between a nation wide setting of our minimum wage and a state wage in two different countries is rather different.

    Yet again, a Leftist tries to equate the US and Australia in terms of money. We're very different.

    Hmmm...except that you initiated this by making the comparison in the first place.

    I didn't initiate anything. I simply said it's higher.
