Is your local minimum wage increasing in 2022?

Most local minimum wage increases occur on January 1 or July 1

Posted November 1, 2021

Minimum wage rates don’t just affect companies and employees at the federal and state levels. Some cities have their own minimum wage rates, and most go up on an annual basis. This increase means a pay raise for workers and a posting change for employers.

Most local minimum wage increases occur on January 1 or July 1, and employers should display the updated poster when a change occurs.

Here are the local minimum wage rate increases announced so far for 2022:
