Minimum wage in every US state in 2021

The federal minimum wage may not change in 2021, but many states have raised their requirements for this indicator, writes Money Talks News.

More than ten years have passed since the federal minimum wage increase. First introduced by Congress in 1938 at 25 cents an hour, the minimum wage last rose in 2009, from $ 6,55 to $ 7,25.

Despite recent calls for a $ 15 an hour minimum wage, the national minimum wage is unlikely to change in 2021 either.

While the federal minimum wage has remained unchanged for ten years, many states have introduced their own, higher minimum wage requirements. In more than half of the states, the minimum wage is higher than the federal one, and in 2021 the wages of workers in 20 states will increase even more.

In several states, minimum wages are either absent or below federal levels. In these areas, any employer covered by the Fair Labor Standards Act, including government agencies, healthcare facilities, schools, and businesses with an annual gross income of at least $ 500, must comply with federal wage requirements.
