Although most states and local communities increase minimum wages at the turn of the calendar, a few of them mandate an increase at the start of the Fiscal Year – July 1. In that vein, Connecticut will hike its current $13 per hour minimum to $14 on July 1. Likewise, Nevada will see its current minimum increase at the end of this month to $9.50 for employees eligible for company benefits, and to $10.50 for those who do not receive company benefits. And finally, not to be outdone, Washington DC will mandate a 90-cent increase in the current minimum of $15.20, settling at $16.10 an hour beginning on July 1, 2022. In addition, several large cities around the country – San Francisco, Minneapolis and Chicago, along with all of Cook County, just to name of few – will all raise their local minimum wage come the first of next month.
