Massachusetts Minimum Wage Set To Rise On January 1

BOSTON (CBS) -- The new year will bring a pay bump for some hourly workers in Massachusetts.

The state's minimum wage will rise 75 cents from $13.50 an hour to $14.25 an hour on Jan. 1, 2022.

These are the latest steps in the plan enacted into law in 2018 to raise the hourly minimum wage to $15 an hour by 2023, while phasing out time-and-a-half pay for Sundays and holidays.

The Massachusetts minimum wage will be nearly double the federal minimum wage, which has stayed at $7.25 since 2009.

The tipped minimum wage will rise to $6.15 on Jan. 1.
