As of January 1, 2015, the minimum wage hourly earning in Florida has increased to $8.05 per hour from the previous $7.93 earned per hour in the prior year. The raise in minimum wage also benefits "tipped employees" who have increased their hourly earnings to $5.03 per hour from the previous $4.91 earned the previous year. This is considering that these "tipped employees" are earning at least minimum wage under the Fair Labor Standards Act or "FLSA" between their hourly earnings and tips.
