Minnesota’s minimum wage hike goes into effect today
ST. PAUL -- Minnesota is seeing its first minimum wage increase in nearly a decade.
Starting today, most of the state’s lowest paid workers will receive $8 an hour.
It’s the first of three annual increases that will push Minnesota’s wage floor from $6.15 an hour — among the lowest in the country — to $9.50 — the second highest in the country — by 2016. Beginning in 2018, it will be indexed to inflation.
