Federal Minimum Wage Update
On July 5, 2007, the DOL’s Wage and Hour Division released a revised Federal minimum wage poster reflecting the new minimum wage increases. Beginning July 24, 2007, the minimum wage will be $5.85 per hour, increasing to $6.55 in 2008 and $7.25 in 2009. Employers subject to the Fair Labor Standards Act’s minimum wage provisions are required to post this notice, in a conspicuous place in all of its locations, where employees can readily read it.
