What's the minimum wage in Florida?

Florida’s minimum wage rate will increase gradually to $15 an hour.

On November 3, 2020, over 60% of Florida voters approved Amendment 2, which increases the minimum wage and amends Florida’s Constitution. Under the new mandate, Florida’s minimum wage rate will increase to $10 an hour in September 2021. The minimum wage then will increase by $1 each year until it reaches $15 an hour in 2026. The minimum wage rate applies to all public and private sector employers, regardless of size or number of employees. Amendment 2 does not change the allowable tip credit for tipped employees meeting the eligibility requirements under the Fair Labor Standards Act. Florida employers may continue to take a tip credit of up to $3.02 per hour for properly classified tipped employees. Since this credit will remain at $3.02, projected minimum wage rates for tipped employees are also included in the table below.
