Default Homework Help?

I have to write stuff on the Line of Thought of Minimum wage. Where the idea was first thought of, and how it got passed on until FDR made remuneration a law. I really can't find it, searching around. Maybe I need a new browser, but if anyone know and can show me a site, please LMK. Thanks

A google search of "History of minimum wage" seems to have quite a bit.

Decent Time magazine article link in it too;
A Brief History of the Minimum Wage - TIME

You think your HW is hard...i have to do a 2 page lab write up on a lab where we measured things...then a 3 page thematic essay on kings in the 17th century.

Oh how i miss american history. Enjoy it while you still can
