Teen Workers' Minimum Wage

Minimum Wage in the U.S.


Teenagers who work should be paid at least the federal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour. Workers under the age of 20 are entitled to a youth minimum pay (or statutory minimum wage) of $4.25 per hour for the first 90 consecutive calendar days of employment; this youth minimum extends to all jobs held by the youngster, not just their first.


If a worker under the age of 20 switches employment, their new employer may pay them at the lower rate for the first 90 days.


Minimum Wage in Each State


Many states and towns have established greater minimum salaries than the nationally required minimum, although they may not always apply to younger employees. In reaction to these minimum wage hikes, several states have suggested minimum wage increases and exclusions for teens.


Before applying for a job or enabling your adolescent to do so, it is critical that you be aware with both state and federal rules that relate to young employees in your region. Employers are often required to follow both state and federal law.
