The legislature in the Aloha State has passed a new minimum wage bill and sent it to term-limited lame-duck Governor David Ige for his signature. House Bill 2510 begins increasing the current $10.10 per hour wage on October 1 of this year, mandating a rise to $12 per hour at that time. Subsequently, the wage will increase to $14 on January 1, 2024, $16 on January 1, 2026 and to $18 per hour on 1/1/2028! In addition, the bill increases the tip credit incrementally to $1.50 per hour over the course of the same six-year period. Although he has yet to sign the bill into law, Governor Ige is on record as supporting the $18 minimum wage and is expected to do so soon.
