On July 1 the Federal minimum wage went up from $6.55 to $7.25 per hour, a 70 cent increase. That amounts to a $28 per week raise for a full-time employee.
Locally the impact appears to be negligible as the majority of workers already are at or above that hourly rate.
Henry County Judge Executive John Logan Brent said one reason for that is Henry County’s proximity to Louisville. He said Louisville makes wages in neighboring areas more competitive and that the Federal minimum wage is just a baseline.
