Minimum Wage Increase

Under a bill signed by Governor Fletcher, the state’s lowest paid workers will get a pay raise.

Fletcher approved the minimum wage increase Thursday afternoon, March 22, 2007.

The measure will increase the minimum wage from $5.15 an hour, to $5.85 when the law takes effect.

In July 2008, it would increase from $6.55 an hour and in July 2009, it would raise it to $7.25.

Kentucky’s move to raise the minimum wage comes as the U.S. Congress ponders a similar move.
