Delaware’s first minimum wage hike since 2009 will go into effect on June 1, 2014, under legislation signed by Governor Jack Markell. The first of two increases becomes effective June 1, 2014, when the minimum wage will go up 50 cents to $7.75 per hour. One year later, on June 1, 2015, the rate will increase another 50 cents to $8.25 per hour.
