Florida minimum wage to increase Sept. 30

Florida’s Amendment 2, which the legislature passed in November 2020, will increase Florida’s minimum wage incrementally until it reaches $15 per hour in September 2026.  Effective today, Sept. 30, Florida’s minimum wage will increase from $8.65 to $10. 

UF employees — including OPS, STAS and FWSP — previously earning an hourly rate less than $10 per hour received an automatic salary increase effective Sept. 27. UF already has a $15 minimum wage for TEAMS and USPS employees.
