OR – New Minimum Wage Rates

Oregon adjusts its minimum wage July 1, 2023.

For hours worked July 1, 2023 and forward, Oregon’s minimum wage will increase based on year-over-year inflation as follows:

  • Standard Minimum Wage: $14.20 per hour
  • Portland Metro Minimum Wage: $15.45 per hour
  • Non-Urban Minimum Wage: $13.20 per hour

The current standard minimum wage rate is $13.50. Based on an increase in the CPI of 5.0% from March 2022 to March 2023, the calculation used for determining the increase to the standard minimum wage rate: $13.50 X .05 = $0.675, rounded to the nearest five cents $0.70.

By statute, the Portland metro minimum wage is $1.25 more than the standard minimum wage, and the non-urban minimum wage is $1.00 less than the standard minimum wage.

Oregon employers are required to post minimum wage posters. Individual posters reflecting the new minimum wage rates as of July 1, 2023 will be available for download on BOLI’s website free of charge by June 1, 2023.
