Idaho is one of 45 states that have enacted minimum wage laws. The minimum wage in Idaho is identical to the current Federal minimum wage rate of $7.25.
Idaho has the country's second-highest percentage of minimum-wage earners, and there has been some movement toward raising the minimum wage to $10.10 per hour. However, this initiative has been led by Democrats in a state that is staunchly Republican. Don't expect a minimum wage increase in Idaho anytime soon unless it is mandated by the Federal government.
