Federal Minimum Wage Increase

The federal minimum wage under the Fair Labor Standards Act, formerly $6.55 per hour, increased to $7.25 on Friday, July 24, 2009. With this change, employees who are covered by the federal Fair Labor Standards Act will be entitled to be paid no less than $7.25 per hour. Tipped employees and certain other workers are exempt or subject to different standards. This increase is the last of three provided by the enactment of the Fair Minimum Wage Act of 2007. In California, the minimum wage under state law is higher than the federal minimum wage, so this change will have relatively little impact. A revised Federal minimum wage poster is now available for viewing, downloading, and posting. Every employer of employees subject to the Fair Labor Standard Act’s minimum wage provisions must post, and keep posted, a notice explaining the Act in a conspicuous place in all of their establishments so as to permit employees to readily read it.

That is a good news for the employees who are covered by the federal Fair Labor Standards Act. "Federal minimum wage poster" is nice and interesting.


i have a question: does minimum wage effect freelance type jobs and gigs? For example, I was asked to be security on a job for 2 days, 12 hours each day. For each day, they will pay $50. Is this legal (coming out to about 4.11 an hour)? is it that they are using underhanded means to get around labor laws, or am I wrong.

It is amazing how 70 cent increase in the minimum hourly wage can take so long to pass. This translates to $28 more per week for someone working 40 hours a week. And that means only an additional $1,456 a year. This is a 10 percent increase. That is before taxes. So someone on minimum wage went from making $13,624 to making $15,080 a year. Somehow this does not sound like enough on which to survive.

Protecting income is just as important as earning it.

I am a recent college graduate, and while I did not work as a waiter, some of my friends did during their college years. If they had the choice, they would prefer to also get covered by this new law. Even if it meant having to forgo getting tips altogether.

In real world of employment good communications with the employer is essential for the health of any business. For the most part, however, it will continue to provide substantive labor law
and human resources content, as well as the attempt to draw employment lessons from current events and popular culture of the people.


This is very humanitarian news for everyone. Thanks for the federal wage increase law.


Houses and cars are not very cheap and not every person is able to buy it. However, home loans are created to help different people in such kind of situations.
