Minimum wage. Increases the minimum wage from its current federally mandated level of $7.25 per hour to (i) $8.00 per hour effective July 1, 2019; (ii) $9.00 per hour effective July 1, 2020; (iii) $10.10 per hour effective July 1, 2021; and (iv) $11.25 per hour effective July 1, 2022, unless a higher minimum wage is required by the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). The measure also provides that the cash wage paid to a tipped employee shall not be less than 50 percent of the minimum wage and that the tip credit shall equal the difference between the cash wage required to be paid to a tipped employee and the minimum wage.
