State Minimum Wage Increase

Effective January 1, 2022, the state’s minimum wage increased $1 to $13 per hour. The increase is part of legislation signed into law in 2019 that will ultimately see the state’s minimum wage increase to $15 per hour by 2024. Under the law, seasonal and small employers were given until 2026 to reach $15 per hour. The minimum wage for these employees increased to $11.90 per hour on January 1, 2022, up from $11.10.
 You should review this increase with your business administrator and other department heads to ensure compliance with the new minimum wage requirements.
