Florida minimum wage raised to $12 an hour as part of 2020 constitutional amendment


October 2, 2023


Florida’s minimum wage rose by one dollar Saturday to $12/hour. The increase is the result of a constitutional amendment approved by voters in 2020 to gradually raise the Sunshine state’s minimum wage to $15/hour by September 30, 2026.


Florida’s minimum wage stood at $8.56/hour when voters approved the 2020 ballot measure to incrementally increase base pay, according to FloridaCommerce. As part of the approved amendment, the state’s minimum wage initially rose by $0.09 to $8.65 on January 1, 2021, and later to $10 on September 30 that same year.

Every Sept. 30 since, the minimum wage has increased by $1 until it will reach $15/hour by Sept. 30, 2026.
