Close to two million Americans are getting a raise Thursday. That is when the minimum wage goes up $.70 from $5.85 to $6.55 an hour.

It's the second of three increases passed into law by Congress last year. The final hike takes place a year from tomorrow when the minimum wage will be raised to $7.25 an hour.
