Florida Minimum Wage Goes Up Today!


Minimum wage workers in Florida are getting to get a pay hike today!

The current minimum wage is $8.65 per hour, but that will go up by $1.35 to $10 per hour.

The pay increase comes a year after Florida voters passed Amendment 2 in the 2020 general election, for the state minimum wage to rise over the next several years until it eventually reaches $15 per hour.

The pay increase schedule looks like this:

$10 on Sept. 30, 2021

$11 on Sept. 30, 2022

$12 on Sept. 30, 2023

$13 on Sept. 30, 2024

$14 on Sept. 30, 2025

$15 on Sept. 30, 2026

Orlando trial attorney John Morgan led the effort for Amendment 2, and invested $6 million of his own money into the initiative.
