Montana Raises Minimum Wage in 2012

On January 1, 2012, the Montana minimum wage has increased by 30 cents; from $7.35 an hour to $7.65 an hour.

Increases in Montana’s minimum wage are based on the annual U.S. City Average CPI (Consumer Price Index) for urban consumers on all items from August to August rounded to the nearest 5 cents.

The current increase is based on an increase in the CPI of 3.8% from August 2010 to August 2011, which is

    $7.35 X .038% = $.28 (rounded to $0.30)
