Effective January 1, 2012, the Florida minimum wage will be increased to $7.67 per hour and will continue to surpass the federal minimum wage, which is $7.25 per hour. Pursuant to the Minimum Wage Amendment to the Florida Constitution, which took effect in 2005, every September the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity is required to calculate and adjust the minimum wage rate by increasing the current minimum wage by the rate of inflation during the preceding twelve month period. The adjusted minimum wage rate calculated is to take effect the following January 1st.

Consistent with federal law, providing that the higher of the state or federal minimum wage prevail, the Florida minimum wage became the standard in Florida when it surpassed the federal minimum wage in June 2011. It will remain this way unless and until a future adjustment to the federal minimum wage makes it greater than Florida's minimum wage.
