On September 29, the Montana Department of Labor and Industry (DOLI) announced that the Montana minimum wage will rise to $8.30 per hour on January 1, 2018. Under Montana law, the DOLI is required to annually review the Consumer Price Index and adjust the state minimum wage to reflect increases in the cost of living. The DOLI recently completed its annual review, and Montana workers who earn minimum wage will see an increase from $8.15 per hour to $8.30 per hour on January 1.
