U.S. minimum wage: exception for American Samoa. The end of a subsidy?.

It seems that the low minimum salary that was applicable to American Samoa (Fish Canning & Processing: $3.26) will have to end with the expiration of the previous federal law on minimum wages.

The minimum wage in American Samoa will have to increase by $0.50 per hour each year until it equals that of the fifty states, i.e. $7.25 per hour.
