Florida's minimum wage rises to $8.46 per hour beginning New Year's Day.

The state's minimum wage is $8.46 an hour as of Tuesday, up from $8.25 an hour in 2018, according to the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity.

In Missouri and neighboring Arkansas, voters in November overwhelmingly approved a minimum-wage increase, which directly affects about 1 million workers. Some cities in California, Santa Fe in New Mexico, and the whole state of Nevada, are planning minimum wage increases on July 1.

The revised enforcement decree of the Minimum Wage Act takes effect starting Tuesday, following its approval by the Cabinet on Monday.

Since the federal minimum wage was last raised in 2009, it has lost about 9.6 percent of its purchasing power to inflation, according to a 2017 report by the Pew Research Center.

But from an employer's point of view, a minimum wage increases is rarely good news. The reason: Missouri's minimum wage is rising. But the total of their salary and tips must at least equal the federal minimum wage.

Advocates credit the trend toward higher minimum wages to the "Fight for $15", a national movement that has used protests and rallies to push for higher wages for workers in fast food, child care, airlines and other sectors. Since then, 29 states, and more than 40 cities or counties, have hiked their minimums above the federal $7.25.
