Arkansas minimum wage bumps to $10 per hour January 1

Minimum wage workers in Arkansas will see a slight increase in their wages soon as a scheduled pay increase goes into effect January 1.

The minimum wage hourly rate increases to $10 per hour January 1 as part of a three stage increase voted in during the 2018 election.

The minimum wage in Arkansas was $8.50 per hour in 2018 when Issue 5 was placed on the ballot after 60,000 signatures were collected. Over 65 percent of voters voted in favor of the issue.

The minimum wage increase was projected to affect approximately 300,000 workers in the state.

The minimum wage increased to $9.25 per hour in 2019. It increased to $10 per hour in 2020 and will cap at $11 per hour in 2021.
