Oregon's Minimum Wage Will Increase This July - And Each Year Thereafter For The Next Six Years

In a first-of-its-kind development, the Oregon legislature passed and the Governor will sign into law a minimum wage hike law that will go into effect July 1, 2016. Under the new law, the rates will steadily increase through 2023, eventually giving Oregon the highest minimum wage rates in the nation.

For the first time in Oregon history, employers will pay different minimum wage rates depending on the part of the state in which they are located, with employers in Portland’s Urban Growth Boundary paying the most, employers in sparsely populated “frontier” areas paying the least, and a middle tier of all other employers in between.
