Minor League Pay Newsbeat

Monday, June 19, 2023

Minimum wage exemption signed into law allowing minor leaguers to get less

Legislation to ensure Major League Baseball team owners could continue paying players on their minor league teams less than Florida’s minimum wage has been signed into law.

Gov. Ron DeSantis signed the bill (SB 892) Monday. It passed the Legislature with unanimous support in the Senate, but with all but one Democrat voting against it in the House. Rep. Kimberly Daniels of Jacksonville stood alone in voting with Republicans.

Congress gave MLB a carve-out for federal minimum wage laws when it renewed the Fair Labor Standards Act in 2018. But two years later, Florida voters approved a state constitutional amendment to increase the minimum wage to $10 and then increase it by $1 each year until it reaches $15 per hour in 2026.

Currently, the Florida minimum wage is $11 and will increase to $12 on Sept. 30. The current federal minimum wage is $7.25.

The bill clarifies that Florida’s minimum wage law includes the federal law’s exemptions for MLB minor league players.
