Effective January 1, 2021, the state minimum wage is $10.30 per hour.
Tipped employees must be paid at least one-half of the state minimum wage. The state minimum base wage for tipped employees is $5.15 per hour. If there is a deficit between the state minimum wage and the employee’s base wage plus tips, the employer is required to make up the difference.
The state minimum wage law does not apply to public employers or retail or service businesses whose annual gross sales are less than $500,000.00.
