Federal Minimum Wage Increase Effective July 24, 2009

Effective July 24, 2009, the federal minimum wage is $7.25 per hour. In states which have a minimum wage lower than the federal minimum wage, and states that have no state minimum wage, employers must abide by the federal minimum wage. All employers must post information regarding minimum wage; an updated poster with this information can be located at http://www.dol.gov/esa/whd/regs/compliance/posters/minwage.pdf.

Information on Wisconsin's current minimum wage, which for general employees is also $7.25, can be found at http://www.dwd.state.wi.us/dwd/publications/erd/pdf/erd_9247_p.pdf
