South Dakota’s minimum wage is going up 25 cents in 2019.
The South Dakota Department of Labor and Regulations announced the state’s minimum pay will increase from $8.85 per hour to $9.10 per hour on Jan. 1.
The minimum wage is adjusted annually by any increase in the cost of living measured in the Consumer Price Index published by the U.S. Department of Labor. This year’s increase was 2.7 percent.
For tipped employees, such as servers, the wage is $4.55 per hour. Wages and tips combined must equal at least the minimum wage.
