Minimum Wage

At the Start of the New Year, Minimum Wages Went up in 21 States. Wisconsin Wasn’t One of Them.

January 4, 2022 — Low-paid workers across the country are getting raises because 21 states and 35 cities and counties increased their minimum wages around the beginning of the year. Those raises will lift workers out of poverty, help struggling families make ends meet, and make it easier for workers to achieve financial security. Unfortunately, Wisconsin workers won’t get any of those benefits, as Wisconsin lawmakers have refused to increase the state’s minimum wage for more than a decade.
