PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — The minimum wage in Oregon is going up on July 1.
The Oregon State Legislature in 2016 approved a set of increases in the minimum wage until 2022, when the wage will be tied to inflation. For the Portland metro area, the minimum wage will top out at $14.75 an hour.
This year’s increase for the Portland metro area (within urban growth boundary) is to $13.25 per hour from $12.50. For standard counties (and outside urban growth boundary) it’s up to $12.00 from $11.25 and for non-urban counties it’s up to $11.50 from $11.
