July 1st, over 300,000 Oregonians get a pay raise


Although many workers who earn a “minimum wage” will get a state-mandated pay raise July 1st, those receiving the increase say it’s mostly about tips and the fact it may put them into a high tax bracket. But yet they say they’re grateful for the bump-up in pay.

In Deschutes County, the minimum wage will rise from $9.75/hr to $10.25. In Crook and Jefferson and Crook Counties it’ll rise from $9.50 to an even $10. And in the Portland metro, from $9.75 to $11.25 – a buck-fifty pay raise. The disparities are supposedly reflective of the higher cost of living in the big cities, a little lower in the medium sized cities and the lowest in the rurals. But with rents skyrocketing across the state overall it makes you wonder who’s in charge of “selecting” the new pay scale and whether they get out much.
