Increase state’s minimum wage

John AndersonFebruary 14, 2022

A Kansas Senator is proposing lawmakers increase the state’s minimum wage to $16 per hour by 2026. Fairway Senator Ethan Corson introduced the “Making Work Pay Act” February 9th. The plan would more than double the state’s minimum wage, currently $7.25 per hour, which matches the federal minimum. According to the proposal, the state’s minimum wage would go to $10 per hour on January, 1, 2023, then increase $2 per hour, per year until 2026. Senate Bill 467 would also increase the tipped minimum wage from $2.13 per hour to $3.25 per hour. Sponsors of the bill include Democratic senators Oletha Faust-Goudeau (Wichita), David Haley (Kansas City), Tom Hawk (Manhattan), Tom Holland (Baldwin City), Cindy Holscher (Overland Park), Pat Pettey (Kansas City), Dinah Sykes (Lenexa), and Mary Ware (Wichita).
