Come Morn and Minimum Wage Rates Surge

Posted in Random Musings by laborlawguy on December 31, 2008

Some eleven states and two municipalities are raising their minimum wage hourly rates on New Year’s Day 2009, topped by the City of Santa Fe with its $9.92 rate (closely followed by San Francisco at $9.79).

Heading the states is Washington at $8.55 an hour. For a full list, check out this site.

The federal rate goes to $7.25 on July 24, 2009, but most of the January 1 state increases already match or top that except for Florida ($7.21) and Arizona ($6.90).

Employers, if you want to keep compliant with federal and state labor law posting requirements, check your requirements on this site.
