Hawaii’s Minimum Wage to Increase to $7.75 on Jan 1, 2015

Hawaii's minimum wage will rise on Jan. 1 for the first time since 2007.

The increase to $7.75 an hour from $7.25 an hour is the first of a four-step adjustment that will take the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour in 2018. It will rise to $8.50 an hour in 2016 and $9.25 an hour in 2017.

Under legislation passed last April, business owners and managers can pay their tipped employees 50 cents an hour below the minimum wage beginning Jan. 1 as long as the total employee compensation is at least $7 an hour above the minimum.
