Nevada's Minimum Wage To Remain $7.25 An Hour

Jun 2, 2018

Minimum wage in Nevada will remain flat in the next fiscal year. Our contributor Kaleb Roedel of the Northern Nevada Business Weekly has the details.

The Nevada Labor Commissioner says the minimum wage employers must pay workers will remain at $7.25 an hour for the fiscal year beginning July 1st.

That rate is for employees who are offered qualified health benefits from their employers. For those workers who aren't offered health benefits, the rate is $8.25 an hour.

In Nevada, the minimum wage is required to be recalculated every year based on increases in the federal minimum wage or by the cumulative increase in the cost of living if that's greater.

The minimum wage in Nevada has not increased since at least 2013, the first year the statistics were posted on the state Labor Commission website.

Daily rates for overtime also will remain the same since that's tied to the minimum wage.
