You know what’s coming as the new year approaches — state minimum wage rate increases. With the federal minimum wage rate unchanged since 2009, states have taken it upon themselves to increase the minimum wage. Currently, the federal minimum wage is $7.25. More than 20 states will see updated rates as the calendar turns to 2020. Is your state or city’s minimum wage increasing again? If you employ workers, you should check to see if the minimum wage is going up in your area.
