Portland Minimum Wage Laws Portland, Oregon Local Minimum Wage for 2018, 2019

While Oregon's state minimum wage is $11.25 per hour, Portland has set its own, higher minimum wage rate that applies to employees of all companies who work within Portland. A minimum wage increase is currently scheduled in Portland, but until the effective date of the state minimum wage rate of $11.25 will apply.

Because Portland has a higher minimum wage rate than the one set by Oregon or the Federal government, the higher local minimum wage rate takes precedence and must be paid to all employees covered by the local minimum wage regulation.

Keep in mind that Oregon and the Federal Fair Labor Standards Act both define various minimum wage exemptions and other labor laws that may apply to employees in Portland. You can find more information about Oregon's minimum wage and labor laws on this site.
