So what should be the minimum wage? Consider this: Your labor is worth no more than the value that you add to the product or service your employer provides. If you demand more, then your employer has no choice but to become more efficient by getting more from fewer employees or charge more for that product or service making him less competitive and losing customers.

A state legislative panel that had proposed removing Wyoming's minimum wage statute from the books may not ultimately recommend doing so after all, which is good news for anti poverty crusaders.
But Case, who works as an economist outside of his duties at the Wyoming Legislature, said raising the minimum wage would increase employers' expenses. That would cause business owners to find ways to decrease those expenses, usually by laying off workers, adding labor saving machinery or by cutting employees' benefits. Higher expenses also leads to a higher cost of finished products, Case said.

The state's minimum wage is $5.15 an hour, $2.10 lower than the federal minimum wage. But the state rate is rarely, if at all, paid. Companies that engage in interstate commerce have to pay the federal wage, said Sen. Cale Case, R Lander, chairman of the , which has been considering the issue, although Case doesn't think it's germane to the committee's purpose.

In July, the committee voted for a proposal to strike Wyoming's minimum wage statute, since lawmakers hadn't found anyone who uses the law.

That's a high threshold for an issue that hasn't been discussed much in the halls of the Capitol in recent years.
