Nebraska minimum wage increases to $8 per hour on January 1

by Mark M. Schorr

Because of the passage of the Nebraska minimum wage petition initiative in the November general election, the state’s minimum wage will increase to $8 per hour on January 1, 2015. Nebraska employers that employ individuals at or near the minimum wage should take steps to ensure compliance with the new requirement.

Also, to plan ahead for next year, on January 1, 2016, the Nebraska minimum wage will increase to $9 per hour.
