Governor Deval Patrick signed a law on June 26, 2014 that will raise the state’s per hour minimum wage over the next few years:

  • $9 per hour: Beginning January 1st, 2015
  • $10 per hour: Beginning January 1st, 2016
  • $11 per hour: Beginning January 1st, 2017

According to the Massachusetts Budget and Policy Center, 20 percent of the Massachusetts labor force can expect to see their wages rise as a result of this change.
