The latest required change to the Minnesota labor law poster is on the Minimum Wage poster.
New information states that minimum wage rates will change effective August 1, 2014 through July 31, 2015. For large employers with annual sales of $500,000 or more, the wage increases to $8.00 per hour. For small employers with annual sales of less than $500,000, the wage increases to $6.50 per hour. There will also be a training wage, for those that are younger than 20 for the first 90 days of employment, and a youth wage, for those younger than 18 and not covered by the federal wage, which will also be $6.50 per hour.
In addition, a new category has been created for those possessing J-1 Visas, and this wage will be set at $7.25 per hour. Wage rates will change again on August 1, 2015, and on August 1, 2016.
