Executive Minimum Wage Order

Beginning January 1, 2015, a new minimum wage for workers paid under federal contracts and subcontracts takes effect. According to an Executive Order signed by President Obama on February 12, 2014, the new minimum wage for workers paid under federal contracts and subcontracts must be at least $10.10 per hour. The wage will adjust annually for inflation, as determined by the U.S. Secretary of Labor in accordance with the Consumer Price Index.
