The Minimum Wage In Idaho Every Year Since 1938
I can recall my first job in high school working as a grocery bagger. I remember feeling so proud making a minimum wage of $5.15 an hour after spending hours under the summer sun pushing carts all afternoon. It wasn't that long ago but I do recall living expenses being much cheaper.
Fast-forward to today and the cost of living continues to rise with more people pushing for a higher minimum wage than ever. There is good news, however, as the 'Raise the Wage Act' will raise the federal minimum wage up to $15 per hour in the year 2025.
Now, there are plenty of places that are offering way above minimum wage but that wasn't always the case in Idaho. We used data from GoBankingRates.com to look at the minimum wage in Idaho the year you were born.
