This increase represents $0.79, up from $10.96. The increase was calculated according to Act 86 of the 2019 Vermont General Assembly.
This adjustment will also affect the wages of service or tipped employees. Their rate is equal to 50% of the full minimum wage, so it will be $5.88 per hour in the new year.
According to current statutes, the minimum wage is set to increase again in 2022, this time to $12.55 per hour. In 2023 and beyond, the minimum wage will increase annually with inflation, calculated by the Department of Labor.
