Minimum Wage

The minimum wage in Chicago is currently $13 an hour. Tipped workers (workers who receive tips as part of their wage, like restaurant servers) currently have a minimum wage of $6.40 an hour. If a tipped worker’s wages plus tips do not equal at least the full minimum wage, the employer must make up the difference.

Chicago’s minimum wage goes up every July 1st, and is dependent on the number of employees at a business. See the notice below for more information.
