Vermont Minimum Wage to Increase in 2021

 

Beginning January 1, 2021, Vermont’s minimum wage will increase $0.79, from $10.96 to $11.75 per hour.

This adjustment also impacts the minimum wage of “tipped employees.” The Basic Tipped Wage Rate for service or tipped employees equals 50% of the full minimum wage or $5.88 per hour starting January 1, 2021.

The minimum wage is set to increase to $12.55 per hour in 2022 as determined by current state statute. After 2022, the minimum wage will resume increasing annually with inflation as calculated by the Department of Labor.
