Minnesota minimum wage set to increase in 2023
ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) – Minnesota’s minimum-wage rates will be adjusted for inflation on Jan. 1, 2023.
According to Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry, the minimum wage will increase to $10.59 an hour for large employers and $8.63 an hour for other state minimum wages.
The current large-employer minimum wage is $10.33, meaning it will increase by 26 cents to $10.59.
Other state minimum wages, including the small-employer, youth and training wages, as well as the summer work travel exchange visitor program wage, which are all currently $8.42, will increase by 21 cents to $8.63. These increases are both 2.5%.
“This increase is designed to help minimum-wage workers keep up with inflation to better provide for themselves and their families,” DLI temporary commissioner Nicole Blissenbach said.
As of Jan. 1, 2023:
- Large employers must pay at least $10.59 an hour when the employer’s annual gross revenues are $500,000 or more.
- Small employers must pay at least $8.63 an hour when the employer’s annual gross revenues are less than $500,000.
- The training wage rate, $8.63 an hour, may be paid to employees younger than 20 years of age for the first 90 consecutive days of employment.
- The youth wage rate, $8.63 an hour, may be paid to employees younger than 18 years of age.
The state minimum-wage rates will not apply to work performed in the cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, which have higher minimum-wage rates.
Minnesota law requires employers to display five state-mandated posters in a location where employees can easily see them. The new minimum-wage poster will be available for download this fall.
As part of Minnesota’s employee notice requirement, employers are required to provide each employee with a written notice of any change before the change takes effect, including a change to the employee’s rate of pay.
