Oregon minimum wage will increase to $9.25 in 2015

Posted By Beth Farmer, Wednesday, October 29, 2014

Oregon's minimum wage will increase 15 cents to $9.25 an hour in 2015, state labor officials announced last month. The raise will affect an estimated 142,000 workers across the state.

Oregon has the nation's second-highest statewide minimum wage, behind only Washington. The rates in both states are tied to inflation, so they are adjusted every year in an attempt to keep pace with the cost of living.

This year, the federal consumer price index increased 1.7 percent between August 2013 and August 2014. Oregon's hourly minimum wage, then, will be adjusted by the same amount. That comes out to be 15 cents, the same as the last two years.
