The U.S. Labor Department has published the 2017 wage-rate floor required by President Obama’s “Establishing A Minimum Wage for Contractors” Executive Order 13658. The Order was implemented through regulations appearing at 29 C.F.R. Part 10. Both the Order and 29 C.F.R. § 10.5 call for USDOL to conduct annual re-determinations of that minimum wage.

Beginning on January 1, 2017, the minimum rate will be $10.20 per hour.
