Minimum Wage Monitor

The federal minimum wage has not increased since 2009. Though the federal government has not adjusted wages, many state, county and city governments have. Use our Minimum Wage Monitor to track the current minimum wage laws across the United States with a historical view of how updates have changed the map in the past four years.
