New rules and new minimum wage rules can make being an employer a confusing job.
One week Colorado minimum wage is higher than the Federal min wage and the next week it is lower?
What is an employer to do? On January 1st 2010 the wage will drop 1 penny below the Federal Minimum wage. Employers need to pay the higher of the two wages at the least to keep out of trouble. If you want to lower your employees wage you can but be careful about the negative effects that can have around the work site.
