Labor Wages

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) requires that employers pay their employees a minimum wage. Prior to 1991, the minimum wage was $4.25 per hour; in 1996, it rose to $4.75. The current federal minimum wage is $7.25. States may implement their own minimum wage as long as it is higher than the one implemented by the federal government. Texas has not exercised this power.
