What is the current minimum wage in my state?

Twenty-nine states and the District of Columbia have raised their minimum wages above the federal rate of $7.25 per hour.

Our Wages by State map tells you the minimum wage for every state.

Five states—Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, and Tennessee—have no state minimum wage laws at all, so employers there are still required to pay the federal minimum wage. In all states, employers are required to pay the state minimum wage or the federal minimum wage—whichever is higher.
