Minimum Wage - WA
OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) - Washington state's minimum wage is
increasing to $9.04 an hour starting in January.
The Department of Labor and Industries announced the change
Friday, raising the barrier from $8.67 an hour. The move will keep
the state's minimum wage as the highest in the nation.
Washington's minimum wage is adjusted each year for inflation as
measured by the Consumer Price Index for the past 12 months, which
is up more than 4 percent.
Oregon has the second highest minimum wage and recently
announced that it will rise to $8.80 an hour in 2012.
