Raise Takes Effect For Colorado Minimum-Wage Workers

DENVER (AP) — Minimum-wage workers in Colorado just got a small raise. Colorado’s minimum wage rose to $7.78 Tuesday. That’s up 14 cents an hour from last year.

2013 is the third year in a row Colorado’s minimum wage has ticked up. Colorado is one of eight states that link minimum wage to inflation.

The federal minimum is $7.25.

Less than 100,000 workers in Colorado earn minimum wage.

Colorado’s new minimum wage for tipped employees is $4.76, also up 14 cents an hour.
