If there seems to be a little bit more change in your pocket, it might be because Montana's minimum wage climbed to $7.35 an hour on January first. That's an increase of ten cents, which translates to $32 per month for the average worker.

Montanans earning minimum wage will get a boost in their paychecks now that the state's minimum wage increased by 10 cents.

The Jan. 1 wage increase to $7.35 is part of Initiative 151, which was enacted in 2006, making the state's minimum wage greater than the current state or federal minimum wage. The initiative also includes a cost-of-living adjustment.
