Nevada Minimum Wage Rises to $12 Per Hour for All Workers

By TheNevadaGlobeStaff, July 1, 2024 12:23 pm

Nevada workers will see a bump in their paychecks starting July 1st, as the minimum wage increases to $12 per hour statewide. This marks the culmination of AB456, a bill passed in 2019 that gradually raised the minimum wage.

A Single Standard Replaces Two-Tier System

Previously, Nevada had a two-tier minimum wage system, with employers offering a lower wage if they provided qualified health benefits. This is eliminated, with the $12 minimum wage applying to all employees regardless of health benefits, unless exempt by state law.

Voters Backed Change in 2022

Voters played a key role in this shift, approving Ballot Question 2 in 2022 which eliminated the two-tier system.
