ST.PAUL, Minn. (KFGO AM) -- The 2013 Minnesota minimum-wage report says there are one-and-a-half-million hourly workers in Minnesota, and 83-thousand of them make $7.25 an hour or less.

Labor and Industry Commissioner Ken Peterson says minimum-wage workers are not who you might think.

The report also shows 40 percent of minimum-wage workers are older than 24, and women are more likely than men to be paid minimum wage.
