Six states announce new minimum wage rates for 2013

Five of the 10 states with laws requiring automatic increases in minimum wage rates to keep pace with inflation have announced new wage rates starting Jan. 1, 2013. Rhode Island's legislature also enacted a law raising the state's minimum wage effective Jan. 1.

-- Florida: The minimum wage will rise to $7.79 (from $7.67), and the minimum cash wage for tipped employees will move to $4.77, from $4.65, starting Jan. 1.

-- Montana: The minimum wage rises to $7.80 Jan. 1, 2013, from $7.65. No tip credit is permitted.

-- Ohio: The minimum wage rises to $7.85 (from $7.70) starting Jan. 1, and the minimum cash wage for tipped employees rises to $3.93 (from $3.85).

-- Oregon: The minimum wage rises to $8.95 (from $8.80) on Jan. 1, 2013. No tip credit is permitted.

-- Washington: The minimum wage rises to $9.19 (from $9.04) on Jan. 1, 2013. No tip credit is permitted.

The five remaining states with mandatory "indexing" laws have not yet announced wage rates for 2013. These states are Arizona, Colorado, Missouri, Nevada, and Vermont. Colorado has proposed a minimum wage rate of $7.78 (from $7.64) starting Jan. 1, 2013, with a minimum cash wage for tipped employees of $4.76 (from $4.62); the state will hold a hearing on the proposal Nov. 1.

Nevada's wage rate increases generally take effect July 1, rather than Jan. 1. The state did not increase its minimum wage in July 2012.

A sixth state, Rhode Island, will increase its minimum wage to $7.75 on Jan. 1, from $7.40. The state legislature enacted the wage increase earlier this year.
