Minimum Wage Rises to $9.45 in Michigan
According to the Lansing State Journal, new sick time rules and a 20 cent per hour minimum wages increase go into effect today here in Michigan.
Michigan's wage will increase from $9.25 to $9:45 per hour. But that's only for some workers.
Teenagers and tipped employees can still be paid less. Employers can pay workers who are 16 and 17 years old 85 percent of minimum wage.
Workers between 16 and 19 can still be paid the so called training wage of $4.25 per hour during their first 90 days on the job.
Tipped employees are only entitled to 38 percent of minimum wage. Starting today, that will rise from $3.52 to $3.59, a 7 cent increase.
