The Alaska minimum wage will remain unchanged in 2022, the state Department of Labor and Workforce Development announced Tuesday.
Currently, the minimum wage stands at $10.34 hourly.
According to a press release from the department, Alaska Statute 23.10.065 requires the minimum wage to be adjusted annually for inflation. But since there was no inflation in 2020, the pay will stay at the same rate for 2022.
By law, Alaska minimum wage must always be at least $1 more per hour than the federal minimum wage, which is set currently at $7.25 according to the federal Department of Labor.
