Which US cities have the highest minimum hourly wages?

With prices getting ever higher, despite recent drops in speed, people will be asking bosses for more money so inflation doesn’t swallow their wallet. Living is expensive and although there are laws for minimum amounts jobs can pay workers, the amount is so low that it is not at all liveable for any person.
