  • Wyoming's minimum wage is among the lowest of all the states. See Minimum Wage.
  • Some workers do not qualify as "employees" under Wyoming's statute, and therefore are exempt from the state's minimum wage requirements. See Employee Exemptions.
  • Employees under 20 years of age may be paid $4.25 for the first 90 consecutive days of work. See Subminimum Wages.
  • There is a minimum wage credit for tipped employees. See Credit for Tipped Employees.
