Overtime and Wages

What is the current minimum wage?

Currently, the federal minimum wage rests at $7.25 per hour. However, many states, and even cities, have enacted their own minimum wage laws. Some cities' and states' minimum wage floors are considerably higher than the federal one. In these cases, employees should receive the higher minimum wage. If you are making less than the minimum wage, your employer may be in violation of the federal Fair Labor Standards Act.
