Minimum Wage — Florida Minimum Wage
In 2004 Florida voters approved a constitutional amendment to increase Florida's minimum wage to $6.15 per hour by May 2, 2005 (from the Federal minimum wage of $5.15 per hour). This change takes effect on May 2, 2005, at which point all Florida employers must be in compliance with the wage increase. In subsequent years, the state's minimum wage will be adjusted annually to reflect the rate of inflation with the new minimum wage taking effect on January 1 of each year.

More Employment Information & Links

Many additional public sector or government job opportunities may be available in your city, county, or community college or university, as well as public schools (also see direct educator employment links below).

Many public organizations as well as Florida companies have job announcements or links to personnel departments included on their websites. In addition, more company jobs today are found by going directly to the source. You may want to review the business sections of Florida newspapers for information on hot companies...or contact a particular company's personnel office (and look for their website to learn more about what the company does) to see if there are opportunities in your area. It's important to remember that many commercial job opportunities are not widely advertised.
