Oregon’s 2015 Minimum Wage Increase Announced

Oregon’s Bureau of Labor and Industries (BOLI) announced a 15-cent increase to the State minimum wage. The 1.6 percent increase brings the Oregon minimum wage to $9.25 an hour beginning Jan. 1, 2015.

According to Oregon Labor Commissioner Brad Avakian, the wage increase will affect eight percent of Oregon’s workforce (approximately 141,000 workers). The chart below reflects changes to Oregon’s minimum wage based on the CPI adjustments since 2002 when voters passed an initiative to calculate the minimum wage rate based on adjustments to the Consumer Price Index (CPI).
