Minimum Wage Rates

Employers are required to comply with wage and hour laws that regulate minimum wage. The minimum wage is the lowest rate that employers are required to pay their non-exempt employees (unless the employee meets certain, state-specific exceptions such as those for tipped employees).

In some cases, the state and federal minimum wage will differ, and whichever is higher, must be paid. It is important to stay up-to-date on any minimum wage changes that occur in your state and ensure you are properly paying your non-exempt employees.

The following is a list of minimum wage rates for each state for 2017 announced, to date. The list also includes scheduled increases for future years.

Please Note: States indicated by an asterisk adjust their rate annually based on the cost of living. For those states, the figure listed is an estimate pending that adjustment. In addition, some cities, counties, state governments, and companies have higher minimum wage rates than the state minimum. Make sure you check with your state department of labor for rates in locations where you conduct business.
