Effective July 24, 2009, the federal minimum wage for covered nonexempt employees is $7.25 per hour. The federal minimum wage provisions are contained in the FLSA (Fair Labor Standards Act). Many states also have minimum wage laws, in circumstances where an employee is subject to both the state and federal minimum wage laws, the employee is entitled to the higher of the two minimum wages.
