Minimum Wage Regulation in USA

USA has minimum wage regulation

The federal minimum wage for covered nonexempt employees is $7.25 per hour effective July 24, 2009.

The federal minimum wage provisions are contained in the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). Many states also have minimum wage laws. In cases where an employee is subject to both the state and federal minimum wage laws, the employee is entitled to the higher of the two minimum wages.

The Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division administers and enforces the federal minimum wage law.
