Minnesota minimum wage to gradually rise to $9.50

St. Paul, Minnesota - State Capitol
On Monday, April 14, 2014 Gov. Mark Dayton (D-MN) signed a minimum wage increase into law. Over the next couple years, the minimum wage in Minnesota will gradually rise to $9.50 per hour for most businesses, excluding many small businesses and resorts. The wage will eventually be indexed to inflation beginning in 2016.
