Minimum wage to raise 9 cents Jan. 1 ahead of September bump to $10

Florida’s minimum wage will inch up to $8.65 on Jan. 1 before jumping to $10 on Sept. 30.

The minimum wage has been $8.56 this year but will increase nine cents in January because of a 2004 constitutional amendment that tied increases to cost-of-living changes.

The minimum wage for tipped workers will be $5.63 an hour as of Jan. 1.

The overall minimum wage, however, will accelerate in September because of a constitutional amendment that was approved last month to eventually set the wage at $15 an hour.

The wage will go to $10 on Sept. 30 and incrementally increase each year until reaching $15 on Sept. 30, 2026.
