In the United States, Congress sets a minimum wage under the Fair Labor Standards Act, known as FLSA.
The federal government establishes the minimum hourly wage, and also its exceptions for tipped workers, apprentices, interns etc. 29 of its 52 states have established a minimum wage that is higher than the federal one and that it compulsorily applies within their territories. On the other hand, 44 cities and counties have raised the minimum wages they apply in their territories above the minimums set by the federal government and their states.
MIAMI MINIMUM WAGE
The Florida minimum wage is currently $ 8.56 per hour , although there are some exceptions for businesses that hire tipped employees and meet the eligibility requirements for the tip credit under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) . In these cases, employers can count tips as wages under the FLSA. Regardless, the employer must pay tipped team members directly a wage that as of January 1, 2020, is $ 5.54 per hour plus tips.
