City Minimum Wage Ordinance Passes

On June 30, on an 11 to 1 vote, the City Council approved a new minimum wage ordinance for Minneapolis.  It lays out a timeline to get almost all Minneapolis wage earners to $15/hour indexed to inflation by July 2024 - within 5 years for businesses with over 100 employees and 7 years for smaller businesses. It offers no tip credit but allows a 90-day “training wage” less than the minimum wage for people under 20 who are participating in a city-recognized employment training or apprenticeship program. It does not include school district, state, federal or University of Minnesota workers, because the city has no authority to regulate those employers. The Council also committed to investing in a study and annual reports on impacts of the ordinance. Additional information at
