State Minimum Wage Won’t Go Up
Nevada workers won’t see an increase in the state’s minimum wage this year. State Labor Commissioner Michael Tanchek says employees without health benefits will still make eight-dollars-25-cents an hour. Those with health coverage will make at least seven-dollars-25-cents per hour. It will be the first time since 2006 that Nevada’s minimum wage won’t go up. The state constitution requires Tanchek to decide if the minimum wage should go up, based on inflation and the federal wage guidelines.
