Oregon’s minimum wage will hold at $9.25-per-hour in 2016.
Labor Commissioner Brad Avakian announced that the 2016 Oregon minimum wage will remain unchanged. The wage is re-calculated each year due to a state law passed by voters in 2002 that ties it to inflation, which for this year, was almost unchanged.
Watch out for scare tactics:
Employers may receive marketing materiel indicating they may be out of compliance. This is an attempt to scare employers into thinking they may need to purchase certain services to stay “legal” in the eyes of the state. Don’t be fooled!
