IMPORTANT: 2013 Minimum Wage Increase

Washington State's minimum wage has increased to $9.19 per hour. 

Visit the Labor & Industries website if you need the official announcement or any other required posters.  There is no need to pay for these, you can get them free online.   

Employers are required to post the “Your Rights as a Worker” poster, which provides information about the minimum wage and other topics. This poster is available at no cost from L&I. (A separate minimum wage poster is no longer required.)

More information regarding Washington’s wage and hour laws is available at Wages.Lni.wa.gov. Employers and workers also may call 360-902-5316 or 1-866-219-7321.
