A friendly reminder that minimum wage rates go up across the state on July 1, 2022. Perhaps this isn’t a big deal for you and maybe your payroll company has already prepared for the increase… but if not, this reminder is for you!
Effective July 1, 2022: Portland minimum wage is now at $14.75/hour, wages in ‘standard’ zones are now $13.50/hour, and rural rates are $12.50/hour. Take a look at this map:
And as another reminder, effective July 1, 2023, minimum wage will be indexed to inflation based on the Consumer Price Index. A scary thought these days, indeed.
As always, remember that the cost of noncompliance is high. Please let me know if you have any questions.
