I know, it’s been awhile since I’ve done one of these. I’m thinking of trying to keep this going.  Or maybe starting a “Why Not Wednesday” (telling stories of what NOT to do and why)! Here’s a fun fact for your Friday…

Minnesota’s 2021 minimum wage for large employers (gross annual revenue greater than $500,000) is $10.08 per hour and $8.21 for small employers.  MN is:

  • 1 of 30 states that has its own minimum wage.
  • The 21st lowest of the 30 states that have a minimum wage.
  • 1 of 18 states that annually adjusts its minimum wage based on a formula (inflation).
  • 1 of 4 states that has a different minimum wage rate based on business receipts.

If you want to geek out with me a bit, there is a 2014 article from MinnPost that details the history of Minnesota’s minimum wage laws back to 1913.
