July 1 Minimum Wage Increases for Employees in Oregon

Oregon’s yearly update to the Minimum Wage notice has been released by the Bureau of Labor and Industries (BOLI), reflecting three minimum wage rates based on an employer’s location.

Regional Minimum Wage Rates

Employers in Oregon are required to pay their employees the wage rate for the region in which the employer is located. Effective July 1, 2019, through June 30, 2020, Oregon’s minimum wage rates are increasing by $.50 per hour, as follows:

  • Standard: $11.25 per hour
  • Portland Metro: $12.50 per hour
  • Non-urban Counties: $11.00 per hour

We encourage employers who are new to Oregon’s minimum wage and are unsure of the minimum wage rate in their area, to explore the state’s Minimum Wage Rate Summary page (https://www.oregon.gov/boli/WHD/OMW/Pages/Minimum-Wage-Rate-Summary.aspx). There, employers can find helpful resources such as an address search tool, maps, a list of counties, and more.

Future Minimum Wage Increases

Oregon employers will be subject to minimum wage increases through July 1, 2022. Beginning July 1, 2023:

  • The Standard minimum wage will be subject to annual July 1 adjustments based on the Consumer Price Index.
  • The Portland Metro minimum wage will be $1.25 more than the standard minimum wage.
  • The Non-urban Counties minimum wage will be $1.00 less than the standard minimum wage.
