Federal Contractor Minimum Wage 2021 Update
The Federal Contractor minimum wage has increased to $10.95 per hour. This is in effect from January 1, 2021 until December 31, 2021. The law is covered by Executive Order 13658. Covered tipped employees must be paid a cash wage of at least $7.65 per hour.
Previously in 2020, the Federal Contractor minimum wage was $10.80 per hour. This is no longer in effect.
This change does not affect the regular Federal minimum wage, which is $7.25. This is only applicable for Federal Contractors and Federal Defense Contractors (employers who are contracted by the government and public entities).
