Raises From Coast to Coast in 2022

National Employment Law Project – Yannet Lathrop – “Raises From Coast to Coast in 2022  56 Cities, Counties, and States Will Raise Minimum Wage  Rates on January 1—Many Reaching or Exceeding $15— With Another 26 Jurisdictions to Lift Pay Later in 2022. In 2022, a record number of states and localities will increase their minimum wages—10  years after fast-food workers first went on strike to demand $15 and a union. These record  increases are the result of underpaid workers organizing, demanding, and winning higher  wages. This movement has not only led to the adoption of higher state and local minimum  wages but has helped seed new worker activism and mobilization across our economy…”[20 states haven’t raised their minimum wages above the federal level, which has remained at $7.25 per hour since 2009.]
