Oregon’s Minimum Wage Will Increase to $8.80 As Of January 1, 2012
Oregon’s minimum wage will be increased to $8.80 per hour, an increase of $.30 per hour, effective January 1, 2012. The Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries (BOLI) established the new rate in accordance with Ballot Measure 25, passed by voters in 2002, which requires BOLI to adjust the minimum wage for inflation based upon the rise in the Consumer Price Index (CPI). The inflation adjustment calculation is performed in September of each year and becomes effective the following January.
Revised minimum wage posters with the new rate will be available for download in December from BOLI’s website at //www.oregon.gov/BOLI.
