Minneapolis Minimum Wage

On June 30, 2017, the Minneapolis City Council passed a $15 minimum wage ordinance. According to the ordinance, employers with 100 or more employees (large business) must pay Minneapolis workers $15 per hour by July 1, 2022. Employers with 100 or fewer employees (small business) must pay $15 per hour by July 1, 2024. Both large and small businesses will make this change over a five and seven-year phase-in period.

The current tiered phase-in hourly wages are as follows:

Effective Date Large business: 5 Years Small business: 7 Years
January 1, 2018 $10 No increase
July 1, 2018 $11.25 $10.25
July 1, 2019 $12.25 $11
July 1, 2020 $13.25 $11.75
July 1, 2021 $14.25 $12.50
July 1, 2022 $15 $13.50
July 1, 2023 $15 indexed to inflation $14.50
July 1, 2024 $15 indexed to inflation $15

 

Of note, there is a 90-day training wage for employees under the age of 20 that is 85 percent of minimum wage. Additionally, employers may not take a tip credit for hospitality workers.
