The minimum wage is currently $6.90 per hour. A business not covered by the Fair Labor Standards Act whose gross annual sales are $110,000 or less may pay $4.00 per hour. However, if an individual employee of such a business is producing or moving goods between states or is otherwise covered by the Fair Labor Standards Act, that employee must be paid federal minimum wage (currently $5.15 per hour). Employers may not use tips as credit toward wage rates, including minimum wage, to an employee. For information on minimum wage exemptions, call the Department of Labor and Industry at 4064445600.
