Update: New Federal Minimum Wage Poster

As I told y'all previously, the Federal minimum wage rose to $5.85 effective July 24, 2007. In addition to raising the minimum wage, employers are required to inform their employees of same by posting a notice. According to the U.S. Department of Labor: "Every employer of employees subject to the Fair Labor Standards Act's minimum wage provisions must post, and keep posted, a notice explaining the Act in a conspicuous place in all of their establishments so as to permit employees to readily read it. The content of the notice is prescribed by the Wage and Hour Division of the Department of Labor. An approved copy of the minimum wage poster is made available [by the Department of Labor] for informational purposes or for employers to use as posters."

To make life a bit easier for you to comply, here's the link to the portion of the U.S. Department of Labor website where you can download the poster in either black and white OR color:

Pretty snazzy, if you ask me.
