The 2014 midterm elections saw a number of significant races and ballot measures across the country. One of particular importance to Nebraska employers is Initiative Measure 425 which sought to raise the minimum wage in Nebraska. This measure passed by a large margin.
As a result, beginning on January 1, 2015, the minimum wage in Nebraska will rise from $7.25 per hour to $8.00 per hour. Then, beginning on January 1, 2016, the minimum wage will raise to $9.00 per hour. Nebraska was one of four states in the 2014 elections that passed measures to raise their state’s minimum wage.
