Minimum Increases July 24
Federal minimum wage will increase again on July 24, 2008 to $6.55. This is the second of the 3 step increase put in place in 2007. July 24, 2009 the federal minimum wage will increase again to $7.25.
In addition employers need to check the state minimum wage and compensate employees the higher of the two wages. For example, in Colorado the state minimum wage is $7.02, so employers are required to pay at least $7.02 per hour.
