On July 1, 2022, the minimum wage in Minneapolis is going up to $13.50 at small businesses and $15 at large businesses. The City stated that it’s committed to “supporting an economy that includes everyone.”
As of Jan. 1, 2022, minimum wage was $10.33 an hour for large employers and $8.42 an hour for other state minimum wages.
The Minneapolis minimum wage ordinance defines small businesses as 100 or fewer employees and large businesses as more than 100 employees. According to the ordinance, tips and gratuities do not count toward payment of a minimum wage.
The City’s Department of Civil Rights is overseeing the enforcement of the municipal minimum wage and wage theft prevention ordinances, and workers are encouraged to report violations online.
“Increases in Minneapolis’ minimum wage directly benefit tens of thousands of families and the economy,” said city officials in a released statement. “The ordinance supports the City’s goals of promoting economic inclusion and reducing economic and racial disparities.”
