Nevada will not increase its minimum wage in 2012.

The Nevada minimum wage is adjusted annually on July 1 based on any increase in the federal minimum wage or, if greater, by the cumulative increase in the cost of living.

The minimum wage for employees who receive qualified health benefits from their employers will remain at $7.25 per hour, and the minimum wage for employees who do not receive health benefits will continue at $8.25 per hour.

Under Nevada law the minimum wage must be $1 more per hour than the federal minimum wage (currently $7.25 per hour) for those who don’t receive health insurance and equal to the federal rate for those who do.
