MONTPELIER, Vt.—The Vermont Department of Labor says the minimum wage paid in the state is going to go up to $8.46.
Currently, the state's minimum wage is $8.15. The change will take effect Jan. 1.
Vermont's minimum wage is pegged to the consumer price index.
Employees who regularly receive tips, such as waiters, will see their minimum wage increase to $4.10 from $3.95.
If the tipped employees total wages -- tips and pay -- do not equal at least $8.46, the employer must pay the difference.
