The U.S. Department of Labor is seeking public comments for a proposed rule, Establishing a Minimum Wage for Federal Contractors. This rule, which implements Executive Order 13658, increases the hourly minimum wage for Federal contractors, subcontractors and their workers to $10.10 per hour, beginning Jan. 1, 2015. Signed by President Barack Obama on Feb. 12, 2014, Executive Order 13658 seeks to raise the minimum wage for products and services performed by parties that contract with the Federal Government. As required by the Order and to the extent practicable, the proposed rule incorporates existing definitions, procedures, remedies and enforcement processes under the Fair Labor Standards Act, the Service Contract Act and the Davis-Bacon Act. Comments must be received on or before July 17, 2014.
