Question : What is the current federal minimum wage?


  1. $7.25 per hour
  2. $9.75 per hour
  3. $11.75 per hour
  4. $10.50 per hour



The minimum wage rate is the lowest hourly pay that can be awarded to workers, also known as a pay floor. The current federal minimum wage is $7.25 per hour, and has not increased since July 2009. However, some states have a higher minimum wage rate. When the state minimum wage rate is higher than the federal rate, employers are required to pay workers the higher amount. At the current time, 29 states have minimum wages above the federal minimum wage ($7.25/hour), and five states have not set a state minimum wage.

They are two of Hollywood’s most acclaimed actresses.

But Julianne Moore, 56, and Liv Tyler, 40, took centre-stage for another reason, as they sizzled in Triumph’s lingerie Autumn/Winter 2017 campaign.

Julianne showed off her age-defying beauty as she sizzled in a black lace bra, while Liv flaunted her pert posterior in a pair of sheer briefs.

Suburbicon actress Julianne showcased her incredibly toned figure in the lacy bra, which she teamed with sheer high-waisted knickers.

Keeping the shoot classy, the mum-of-two added a slinky semi-sheer kimono to the saucy ensemble.

She styled her glossy auburn locks in tumbling waves and framed her features with minimal make-up.

Meanwhile Liv, the daughter of Aerosmith rocker Steven Tyler, flaunted her pert posterior in a pair of sheer briefs.



Meanwhile, Liv recently opened up about her family life and living with David Beckham’s best friend Dave Gardner.

Three-years after meeting sports and entertainment manager Dave Gardner, perhaps better known for his long-term friendship with former footballer David Beckham, the American actress, 40, has exchanged her bohemian life in New York for comparative domesticity in London.

Indeed, a busy household finds the couple sharing four children; Sailor Gene, two, and Lula Rose, one, as well as their respective sons from former marriages – Liv’s 12-year old Milo, and Dave’s 10-year old Grey.


Speaking in Red magazine’s October issue, Liv insists it was the desire to extend their families that helped strengthen her relationship with her British fiancé.

‘We both wanted to have a family and children and a partnership and love,’ she explained.

‘Our jobs are high stress and high energy and constantly moving, so it’s really just the family part we’re on the same page about, which is amazing because I know that’s often quite tricky for couples.’

The actress also credited Dave for his hands-on approach to parenthood and willingness to step in as Liv’s hugely successful career continued uninterrupted following her relocation to the United Kingdom.


She recalled: ‘After I moved to England, I reconnected with an agent and within about a week, she said, "I’ve got this job for you," And it was starting the following week.

‘It meant commuting to Leeds for a few days at a time, but it was so good for me and David was just like, "I’ve got this". He was home every night for dinner and bedtime, and holding down the fort.

‘He drops the boys at school every single morning, while I’m standing there at the door in my pyjamas, covered in food, with both babies in my arms.’

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expecting their third child, Kensington Palace has confirmed.

An official statement released today said: ‘Their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting their third child.

‘The Queen and members of both families are delighted with the news.

‘As with her previous two pregnancies, The Duchess is suffering from Hyperemesis Gravidarum.

‘Her Royal Highness will no longer carry out her planned engagement at the Hornsey Road Children’s Centre in London today.

‘The Duchess is being cared for at Kensington Palace.’

The couple already has two children, Prince George, 4, and Princess Charlotte, 2.

The announcement confirms predictions that William and Kate would have a third child.

On a royal tour of Poland in July 2017, The Duchess of Cambrudge joked about having a third – after being given a present designed for newborns.

When she was offered a cuddly toy designed to soothe tiny babies during an event for start-up tech companies in Warsaw she turned to the Duke, and said: ‘We will just have to have more babies.’

The news was announced as the royal couple were preparing to send their eldest child, Prince George, off to school for the first time.

They have chosen a fee-paying independent school in a south London borough for their four-year-old son.

Thomas’s Battersea will welcome the young prince and his parents on Thursday.

Princess Charlotte’s royal trip tantrum

The young princess seemed initially unimpressed as the royal family visited an Airbus plant in Hamburg.

On Tuesday, Kate was due to join her husband and Prince Harry to visit the newly-established Royal Foundation Support4Grenfell Community Hub, which provides mental health resources for the children, young people and families affected by the Grenfell fire.

William, who quit his job as a pilot for the East Anglian Air Ambulance in July to become a full-time royal, is also due to attend the National Mental Health and Policing Conference in Oxford on Tuesday.

The couple’s third child will be born fifth in line to the throne, bumping uncle Harry out of the top five and into sixth place.

The Prince of Wales is first in line, followed by William, Prince George and the couple’s daughter Princess Charlotte, who is two.

The Royal couple is likely to chose a classic name for their third child, just like they did for Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

If the baby is a girl, they are thought likely to pick a traditionally royal name such as Alice – which was the name of one of Queen Victoria’s daughters and also of the Duke of Edinburgh’s mother – or Victoria after the baby’s long-reigning ancestor.

Other suggestions include Alexandra or Mary, the Queen’s two middle names and the names of her grandmother Queen Mary and great-grandmother Queen Alexandra – or Amelia, the name of one of George III’s daughters.

Historically royal names such as James – also the name of Kate’s brother – are among the favourite predictions for a boy, along with Philip, which might be chosen out of respect for William’s grandfather, the Duke of Edinburgh.

Other contenders could be Charles, to honour the Prince of Wales, Albert, Arthur, Frederick or even Henry – Prince Harry’s actual name.
