MINIMUM WAGE INCREASES TO $11 PER HOUR ON JANUARY 1


By Bob Katzen

The state’s current $10 per hour minimum wage increases to $11 on January 1 for some 500,000 workers in the Bay State. This will be the third consecutive annual pay increase since 2014 when the Legislature approved a $3 hike in the $8 per hour minimum wage to take place over a three-year period. The wage rose from $8 to $9 in 2015 and then to $10 per hour in 2016.
