2016 Minimum Wage Increase

In the 2014 Legislative Session, Minnesota policymakers increased the state's minimum wage.  As part of the three year phasing, Minnesota's minimum-wage rates will increase again on August 1, 2016. To help employers understand the requirements, the Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry (DLI) has updated its minimum-wage fact sheets; both are available at www.dli.mn.gov/MinWage.

As of Aug. 1, 2016
  • Large employers must pay at least $9.50 an hour (annual gross volume of sales made or business done of $500,000 or more).
  • Small employers must pay at least $7.75 an hour (annual gross volume of sales made or business done of less than $500,000).
  • The training wage rate is $7.75 an hour (90-day training rate paid to employees who are younger than 20 years of age).
  • The youth wage rate is $7.75 an hour (may be paid to employees younger than 18 years of age).
Other minimum-wage laws
  • Minimum-wage rates apply to all hours worked, whether part time or full time.
  • Employees must be paid at least the minimum-wage rate, no matter how they are paid.
  • No employer may take a tip credit against wages in Minnesota.
  • Examples of workers exempt from minimum-wage requirements include:  bona fide executive, administrative or professional workers; babysitters; and volunteers of nonprofit organizations.
