An employer may continue to pay minors 16 to 17 years of age 85% of the minimum hourly wage rate. That means that on March 29, 2019, that rate will increase from $7.86 to $8.03 per hour. But, there is no change to the training wage of $4.25 per hour.
Effective March 29, 2019, 38% of the minimum hourly wage rate for tipped employees will increase from $3.52 to $3.59 per hour.
