The minimum wage for the state of Montana is set to go up in January.

The state workforce can expect to see an increase of 10 cents, making the new minimum wage $7.90 per hour.  That means residents earning minimum wage can fill their wallets with an extra 208 dollars a year before taxes.  The wage increase is due to the average Consumer Price Index, for all urban consumers, for all items, or CPI rising 1.5% from August 2012 to august 2013. The 10 cent raise goes into effect on January 1st of 2014.
