Minimum Wage Increases January 1

Members, this is just a reminder that the state of Minnesota’s minimum wage (which is indexed to inflation) will increase a few cents on January 1, 2023. So the rate goes from $10.33 (large employer, defined as $500k or more in gross revenues) or $8.42 (small employer, less than $500k gross) to $10.59 (large) or $8.63 (small) on January 1, 2023.

This new wage posting will be on your brand new All-in-one Labor Law Poster from MLBA which will be mailed out to you in January. The new min. wage posting and EEOC “Know Your Rights” are the two changes from last year’s All-in-one Poster.
