New Hampshire is likely to remain among only a handful of states with no minimum wage and default to the federal minimum of $7.25 an hour after Gov. Chris Sununu, citing the state’s “booming” economy, on Friday vetoed a bill that would have boosted the wage twice over the next two and a half years.

Senate Bill 10 called for a boost in the state’s minimum wage to $10 an hour on Jan. 1, 2020 and then to $12 an hour beginning on Jan. 1, 2022.
