News & Updates


Small Business Administration Regional Advocate Jennifer Clark

Will the Minimum Wage Increase for Federal Contractors Impact You?

On June 17, 2014, the Department of Labor proposed a rule to increase the hourly minimum wage for federal contractors, subcontractors and their workers to $10.10 per hour, beginning January 1, 2015, and every year after at a new amount determined by the Secretary of Labor.  This applies to new contracts, contract-like instruments, and solicitations including:

* Procurement contracts for services or construction
* Contracts for services covered under the Service Contract Act
* Concessions contracts
* Contracts entered into with the Federal Government in connection with Federal property or lands and related  to offering services for Federal employees, their dependents, or the general public
* Wages of workers governed by the Fair Labor Standards Act, Service Contract Act or Davis Bacon Act

On July 8, 2014, the Office of Advocacy will host a roundtable on the proposed rule to hear how small firms with federal contracts anticipate they will be impacted.  The roundtable will be held at the U.S. Small Business Administration in Washington, DC.  Regional input is greatly appreciated, so if you are able to participate by phone, or would like more information, please contact Janis Reyes at janis.reyes@sba.gov or 202-205-6533.
