If my state has a minimum wage law, am I subject to state laws or the federal minimum wage laws?
The federal minimum wage for nonexempt employees under the FLSA is $7.25 per hour, effective July 24, 2009. Many states also enact their own minimum wage laws. For example, California, Florida, and Washington have minimum wage rates higher than the federal minimum wage. Where an employee is subject to both the state and federal minimum wage laws, the employee is entitled to the higher minimum wage rate.
