On September 19, 2016, the Department of Labor (DoL) released guidance on the impending increase in the minimum wage for contractors performing work covered by Executive Order (EO) 13658. The EO was signed in 2014 and raised the minimum wage to $10.10 per hour as of January 1, 2015. It also established a procedure for determining the amount of annual minimum wage increases for each year going forward. In 2016, the wage increased to $10.15 per hour, and beginning January 1, 2017, it will increase again to $10.20 per hour.
