South Dakota increases its minimum wage.

Effective January 1 of each year, South Dakota increases its minimum wage rate to reflect an increase in the cost of living. This increase, which is 2.7 percent for 2019, is determined by the Consumer Price Index, a measure of changes in the purchasing-power of currency and the rate of inflation. South Dakota’s minimum wage will increase from $8.85 to $9.10 per hour in 2019.

The hourly minimum wage for tipped employees will also increase from $4.425 per hour to $4.55 per hour (half the minimum wage for non-tipped employees). Employers must make sure tipped employees receive no less than minimum wage and must keep a record of all tips received by employees. Employees who are exempt from minimum wage include seasonal amusement or recreation workers, babysitters, outside salespersons, and apprentices.
