Minimum wage laws across the U.S.

The Portland City Council recently approved a new $10.10 minimum hourly wage for the city’s employers effective on January 1, 2016. Mouse over the map to see how that compares with minimum wage laws in other cities and states.

Note: this map was updated on Sept. 11, 2015 to add additional clarifying information about minimum wage increases in specific cities and correct the wage figures for Seattle, San Francisco and Los Angeles, where a $15 minimum wage target won’t be reached until 2017, 2018 and 2020, respectively.
