It’s that time of year again. Several states and cities are increasing their minimum wage rates on July 1 to coincide with the start of their fiscal years. Remember household employees like nannies and in-home senior caregivers must be paid at least minimum wage. The highest hourly wage of the federal, state, and local rates apply. Since the federal minimum wage is still $7.25/hour, your state or local rate may pertain.
