A quick update from Shari Lane:

Governor Kate Brown signed the new law on March 2, 2016. By 2022, Portland’s minimum will rise to $14.75, $13.50 in smaller cities and towns, and $12.50 in rural areas.

The first increases will occur in July, when the current $9.25 hourly rate will go up by 50 cents in Portland and smaller cities and 25 cents in rural communities.
