Oregon minimum wage increase: 2014 minimum wage bump coming for Oregon residents

Oregon minimum wage is about to increase for 2014. Having the Oregon minimum wage increase should help a lot of state residents when it goes into place on Jan. 1. A report from NWCN on Friday (Dec. 27) states that this bump will again give the state the second-highest rate in the nation. It certainly shows that the state is trying to take care of its workers, even though many businesses have opposed another raise.

The report states that this will be a 15-cent an hour hike, taking the current rate of $8.95 and pushing it up to $9.10 per hour for 2014. That raise is slightly more than what Washington state is doing for its residents on the first day of the new year. Washington will be increasing its rate from $9.19 up to $9.32, keeping the state as the highest rate in the nation. While it's not a competition, it shows how workers in the Pacific Northwest can benefit from in-state jobs.

This Oregon minimum wage increase will make it even more tempting for Idaho workers to cross the border for jobs. That has been a huge enticement for Idaho residents to cross the border into Washington in the past and has drawn quite a few out-of-state employees to cities like Cheney and Spokane.
