Washington Minimum Wage Remains Unchanged for 2010

The Washington Department of Labor and Industries announced recently that pursuant to Revised Code of Washington §49.46.020, the minimum wage for the state of Washington will remain at $8.55 per hour for 2010. The law requires an adjustment to the minimum wage be calculated each year. The adjustment is tied to the change in the federal Consumer Price Index for Urban Wage Earners and Clerical Workers (CPI-W) for the 12 months ending in August. Since there is no provision in the law to decrease the minimum wage when the CPI declines, the wage will remain unchanged.
