Here’s what South Dakota’s new minimum wage is going to be
The minimum wage is annually adjusted by any increase in the cost of living, as measured in the Consumer Price Index published by the U.S. Department of Labor. South Dakota has implemented this annual increase every year since it took effect on Jan. 1, 2016.
The hourly minimum wage for tipped employees will be $5.40 an hour effective Jan. 1, 2023. That is half the minimum wage for non-tipped employees.
Wages and tips combined must equal at least the minimum wage.
The increases will apply to all South Dakota employers, with some limited exceptions.
