This November 4th, South Dakota voters will decide ballot measure to increase minimum wage. Measure 18 would increase the minimum wage from $7.25 to $8.50 per hour, effective January 1, 2015. This measure would also address employees whose wages are made through tips. For tipped employees, the minimum wage would be half the minimum wage paid to non-tipped employees and the same cost of living increase would apply. Additionally, the measure would increase the minimum wage each year to adjust for inflation, as measured by the Consumer Price Index (CPI).
All South Dakota employers will be required to post the 2015 Minimum Wage posting, if Measure 18 is passed. Once the notice is released by the state, Compliance Poster Company will have available two updated options – a new 2015 South Dakota All-On-OneTM Labor Poster or a South Dakota Minimum Wage Peel ‘N Post.
