Illinois has issued a revised labor law poster that includes an increase in the Illinois minimum wage from $7.50 per hour to $7.75 per hour, effective July 1, 2008.
The new rate was not on the previous minimum wage poster, although there was a sentence explaining future increases. A sentence stating that the Illinois minimum wage will increase by another 25 cents per hour on July 1, 2009 and 2010 is on the revised Illinois labor law poster.
The Illinois minimum wage rates as of July 1, 2008 for those under 18 years of age ($7.25 per hour or $4.35 per hour with tips) are listed on the revised poster. Those new rates were not on the previous poster and there was no information about them.
The new minimum wage rate with a 40 percent tip credit ($4.65 per hour as of July 1, 2008) is also included on the revised Illinois labor law poster.
