“Effective Sept. 15, 2015, the general minimum hourly wage will increase from $10.25 to $10.45 and the liquor server wage from $9.00 to $9.20 per hour,” reads their release.
The six month leeway is designed with employers in mind, “giving businesses the necessary lead time to implement the new minimum wage without undue hardship.”
Before this one, the last minimum wage increase was in 2012.
