Why does tennesee,alabama.missisippi,and louisianna have no state minimum wage?

Because it is a fallacy/injustice against free enterprise.

It is not neccessary. The demand will control the wage.

They are basically third world counties

Republican Trump supporters in those states would rather use whips than currency to make their employees work.

because the defacto minimum wage is what really counts. We have a factory in Miss, wages paid are $10-$13. Cant pay any less or no one applys

Probably because they don't need it. The cost of living varies substantially around the country plus the federal minimum wage is still in effect.
Scandanavia (liberals favorite "socialist" countries) don't have minimum wage laws either.

And South Carolina.
I guess they figure: why bother?
Note that sixteen other states have a minimum wage identical to the Federal.
Why did they bother?

Because there is a Federal one and they haven't taxed their way into needing to raise it yet.
- and you left out several states including NH and WY that also maintain a $7.25 minimum wage. (and PR where it is still below the Federal Level)
ie. Just paid @ $2.50 for gas in NH yesterday....what is it in that Socialist Mecca of California? $4.00/gl or has it hit $5 yet?

If those states could, they would still have slavery.
