Mega – Minimum Wage Hikes After The Midterms

by | Nov 17, 2022 | Industry, Politics, States

Multiple states put minimum wage on the midterm ballots to drastic effect. Most notably, voters approved significant hikes in a few key jurisdictions. Nevada voters, for example, bumped the lowest paid workers from $10.50 to $12 per hour, but in Nebraska, the state will bump up the lowest paid workers from $9 to $15 per hour by 2026. And that’s not even the biggest increase on tap.

Following the midterms, the tipped minimum wage in Washington, D.C. will essentially be phased out. Those workers will jump from $5.35 to $16.10 per hour, which is right on par with their non-tipped counterparts. Restaurants are already attempting to navigate exactly how they’ll afford this hike, which doesn’t spell good news for inflation.
