Federal Minimum Wage Increased.
When the federal and the Michigan minimum wage
differ, employers typically have to pay the higher wage. Because the minimum wage in Michigan
is higher for most workers, farmers in Michigan
will have to pay the higher Michigan
minimum wage in most cases. In those few
cases when the application of the federal minimum wage will lead to a higher
rate, it needs to be paid.
