Florida’s minimum wage set to rise to $8.25

Florida’s minimum wage will rise from $8.10 to $8.25 an hour on Jan. 1, one of 18 states in line for a hike in the new year along with 20 cities and municipalities.

A report from the National Employment Law Project estimates that once all the increases are fully phased in, 15 million workers will see raises—many to levels of $12 to $15 an hour.

Florida is among 38 states clustered in the "below $12 an hour" range.

According to the report, in a total of six states and 17 cities and counties, the increases will eventually reach $12 to $15 an hour once they are phased in over the next few years. Campaigns to raise the minimum wage are underway in at least 17 more states and cities.
