Minimum wage in Nevada to stay at $7.25 per hour

CARSON CITY — The state’s minimum wage of $7.25 per hour will remain the same as it has been since 2009, state Labor Commissioner Thoran Towler announced today.

The minimum wage will be $8.25 an hour for workers not offered medical insurance by their employers.

The minimum wage is set by a formula in the Nevada Constitution. The labor commissioner annually computes the minimum wage, which is effective July 1.

Towler is also conducting an annual survey of contractors to determine the prevailing wage that must be paid on public works projects.

Prevailing wage rates are required for all public works construction projects, such as schools, libraries, roads and government buildings costing more than $100,000. Those rates will be set in October.
