The minimum wage for Indiana workers is going up.
The state’s minimum wage will increase from $6.55 per hour to $7.25 per hour on Friday. It coincides with a 10.7-percent increase in the federal minimum wage to $7.25 per hour.
The Indiana Minimum Wage Law applies to the minority of Hoosier employers and employees not covered by the federal minimum wage.
Employers of workers who receive tips must still pay them at least $2.13 per hour on top of their tips. If their tips combined with the employer’s wage of $2.13 per hour fall short of the minimum wage, the employer must make up the difference.
