The Minneapolis City Council passed minimum wage ordinance June 30, moving toward  a $15 rate.

What are the details?

Starting January 1, 2018, large employers will be required to pay employees a minimum wage of $10.00, the first rate set by the city of Minneapolis. However, Minnesota currently has a $9.50 state minimum wage.

The rate increases again July 1, 2018, to $11.25 and then yearly on July 1 until the rate hits $15.00 in 2022.

Small employers will be required to pay a $10.25 minimum wage starting July 1, 2018, and will have until July 1, 2024, to increase to $15.00.

Is a posting required?

The new ordinance requires a posting in English and in any language required by at least 5% of the employees at the workplace or job site (if the language is published by the city).
