Oregon Minimum Wage to Increase January 1, 2009

Brad Avakian, Commissioner of the Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries announced recently that, effective January 1, 2009, the minimum wage for the state of Oregon will increase to $8.40 per hour. As a result of Measure 25, which passed in 2002, an adjustment to the minimum wage must be calculated no later than September 30 of each year. The adjustment is based on any increase in the US City Average Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers for All Items (CPI). The 5.37% increase in the CPI will result in an increase of $0.45 for 2009. Contact Vision Payroll if you have any questions on the Oregon minimum wage increase or visit our Minimum Wage Chart.
