Q. The federal minimum wage increased in July. How does that relate to the minimum wage in Michigan?
A. Michigan employers are required to pay the higher of the federal or state minimum wage. The federal minimum wage went up to $5.85 on July 24. But the Michigan minimum wage was raised to $7.15 per hour effective July 1. Thus Michigan employers must pay $7.15.
Michigan’s minimum wage will be higher than the federal rate for the near future: Michigan will increase to $7.40 effective July 1, 2008, while the federal rate goes up to $6.55 on July 24, 2008, and $7.25 on July 24, 2009.
