Jan. 10, 2021
Several states’ minimum wage rates increased as of Jan. 1, 2021, or will increase later in 2021.
The federal minimum wage will remain at $7.25 per hour for non-tipped employees. Where a state or locality has implemented a minimum wage rate that is higher than the federal rate, covered employers are required to pay the applicable state or local minimum wage rate. Although not included in the chart (because the state rate is not scheduled to increase in 2021 or an increase has not yet been announced), the following additional states currently have minimum wages higher than the federal rate: Delaware ($9.25); Washington, D.C. ($15.00); Hawaii ($10.10); Nebraska ($9.00); Rhode Island ($10.50); and West Virginia ($8.75).
