Governor Snyder signed the new minimum wage law on 12/14/2018 with the increase from $9.25 to $9.45 beginning 3/29/2019.  This was the first of several wage increases that will be implemented over the next 10 years. 

The Budget Office will make the necessary internal adjustments to ensure that any general fund student wage budgets will be increased to reflect the new minimums and the updated student pay rate scale.  There will not be any reduction in student employment numbers or hours worked as a result of minimum wage changes. 

Effective December 27, 2020, for the Winter 2021 semester, students will automatically have their wages adjusted again to reflect the $0.22 increase to $9.87 that will be implemented on January 1, 2021.
