(ABC 6 News) The minimum wage in Minnesota is set to go up on January 1st to adjust for inflation.

The Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry says the rate will increase to $10 an hour for large employers and $8.15 for other state minimum wages.

As of Jan. 1st:

  • Large employers must pay at least $10 an hour when the employer's revenues are $500,000 or more
  • Small employers must pay at least $8.15 an hour when the employer's annual gross revenues are less than $500,000
  • The training wage rate, $8.15 an hour, may be paid to employees younger than 20 years of age for the first 90 consecutive days of employment
  • The youth wage rate, $8.15 an hour, may be paid to employees younger than 18 years of age.
