Massachusetts Minimum Wage Changes!

On January 1, 2021, the state minimum wage will increase to $13.50 per hour. The minimum base wage for tipped employees will increase to $5.55 per hour.

The rate of premium pay (applicable to many retail employees) for working on Sunday, Memorial Day, Juneteenth, Independence Day, and Labor Day, will be reduced to 1.2 times an employee’s regular rate of pay. Premium pay for working on New Year’s Day, Columbus Day, and Veterans Day, however, remains at 1.5 times the employee’s regular rate.
