EUGENE, Ore. -- Oregon’s minimum wage will increase starting July 1.

This Sunday, 270,000 working Oregonians earning minimum wage will see a raise, the Oregon American Federation of Labor - Congress of Industrial Organizations said.

With rent and housing demand on the rise, the Oregon AFL-CIO support the increase, which will be split into three regions.

In rural counties, minimum wage will increase from $10 to $10.50 per hour. In the Portland Urban Growth Boundary, minimum wage will be $12 an hour, up from $11.25. Statewide, workers will see their hourly wage rise to $10.75 from the current wage of $10.25.

“We are thankful and appreciative of the vision and leadership shown by Governor Kate Brown and by the Oregon legislature in passing this groundbreaking minimum wage increase two years ago,” said Oregon AFL-CIO President Tom Chamberlain. “At the same time, it is not getting any easier for working people to make ends meet in Oregon. Rent is on the rise. Housing is not keeping up with demand. We have to keep pushing forward to make things better for everyone.”

The Oregon AFL-CIO said workers earning minimum wage should check their paystubs following the increase. If you have any questions about the increase, or if you would like to report an employer who is not increasing wages in accordance with the law, CLICK HERE.
