Biden raises minimum wage for federal contracts to $15 an hour

​President Biden signed an executive order on Tuesday requiring federal contractors to pay a $15 minimum wage — a move that will affect hundreds of thousands of workers, the White House said.

“These workers are critical to the functioning of the federal government: from cleaning professionals and maintenance workers who ensure federal employees have safe and clean places to work, to nursing assistants who care for the nation’s veterans, to cafeteria and other food service workers who ensure military members have healthy and nutritious food to eat, to laborers who build and repair federal infrastructure​,” the White House said in a statement earlier Tuesday.

All government agencies will have to incorporate the $15 wage in new contract solicitations beginning on Jan. 30, 2022, and implement the minimum wage into new contracts by March 30, 2022, the White House said. ​
