During President Obama's 2014 State of the Union speech, he stated that he's raising the minimum wage, by executive order, for workers under federal contracts to $10.10 per hour. The executive order is part of a broader pledge from the White House to pursue policies that don’t rely on congressional approval.  See recent Executive Order news
