Michigan Minimum Wage Workers Get a Raise on Labor Day

Zonar RF

Some Michigan workers are getting a raise in September. On Labor Day, the minimum wage in Michigan is set to increase from $7.40 per hour to $8.15 per hour. This means that workers across the state without any college or real life experience whatsoever will officially make just as much money as those of us in radio. But we’re not bitter…

Monday’s increase is the beginning of a 25 percent raise that is projected to take place over the next four years. Ultimately, the minimum wage will reach $9.25 per hour by 2018. However, after next week’s increase, workers will have to wait another year before seeing the next installment — $8.50 per hour.

Workers who rely on tips will also see a pay increase – individuals currently making a minimum wage of $2.65 per hour will be boosted to $3.10.

For the rest of the workforce fighting to stay afloat on wages just over the minimum, well, you are screwed. Expect prices on good and services to continue to climb for the next several years.
