During his fourth State of the Union address Tuesday evening, President Barack Obama called for an increase in the federal minimum wage -- from $7.25 to $9.00.

In calling on Congress to raise the minimum wage to $9 an hour, Obama said, "Tonight, let's declare that in the wealthiest nation on Earth, no one who works full time should have to live in poverty."
