2010: The state minimum wage will remain the same

For the past 11 years the state’s minimum wage rate has begun the New Year with an increase. Not so in 2010.

The state Department of Labor & Industries has issued a press release reminding employers (and employees) that the minimum wage in Washington will not increase in 2010. It will remain at $8.55 an hour – because the Consumer Price Index did not increase in the past 12 months.

The agency says employers may continue for the next 12 months using the current minimum wage poster.
