As the clock struck midnight Jan. 1, many Minneapolis workers should have gotten a pay raise. That’s because the first phase of Minneapolis’ minimum wage ordinance is now in effect.

As KMSP – FOX 9 reported, this first phase of minimum wage increases minimum wage to $10 an hour, but only impacts large businesses of 100 employees or more.

The hike for small businesses, with less than 100 employees, takes effect on July 1, but at a rate of $10.25 per hour. At that time, the minimum rate for large businesses will rise to $11.25.

Currently, minimum wage in Minneapolis ranges between $7.75 and $9.50.
