Increasing the minimum wage to $7.25, may not affect the majority of Texoma residence, said Bob Rhoden of Workforce Solutions Texoma.

According to information from Texas Industry Profiles, the mean wage for the Sherman/Denison area is $16.06, with an entry wage of $7.84 and an experienced wage of $20.17. The median wage for the area is $12.82. "For the most part, businesses locally have been paying greater than the minimum wage for a long time," Rhoden said.
