Minimum Wage Changes for 2016

12/28/15

 

Minimum wage is being increased in many states and localities in 2016. 

 

By January 1, 2016, 14 states (Alaska, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Hawaii, Michigan, Nebraska, New York, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Vermont, and West Virginia) will increase their minimum wage.  Other cities and states are increasing their rate later in 2016 or have legislation pending or planned regarding increasing their current rate. 

 

Below is a current list of minimum wage by state for 2016 along with a sampling of localities that will be implementing their own minimum wage for 2016 – this is a hot-button issue and these rates may change as the year progresses, and many legislatures have approved phased increases over a period of months or years.  For the most current minimum wage information for your city and state, please contact a NannyChex account representative:
