Local Minimum Wage Background

In 2019, the Colorado State Legislature passed legislation (HB19-1210) that allows local governments to set a local minimum wage standard that is higher than the state minimum wage. In January 2020, Denver enacted a citywide minimum wage to help those working in the city better keep up with an increasing cost of living.

Connection to Consortium of Cities

A working group of the Boulder County Consortium of Cities has been convening a group of local elected officials in the Denver Metro Area to gather information on the legislation and explore opportunities to develop a regional process to achieve a common minimum wage in Boulder, Broomfield, Adams, and Jefferson counties.

For local cities to adopt their own minimum wage, they must consult with surrounding local governments and engage stakeholders, including chambers of commerce, small and large businesses, businesses that employ tipped workers, workers, labor unions, and community groups.

To start this process, The Boulder County Consortium of Cities Local Wage Working Group hosted a Local Wage Webinar on Wednesday, September 21, 2022 to hear presentations about the state legislation, the cost of living and wage history in the Denver Metro Area, and the economic rationale for increasing wages.

Webinar presenters included the Colorado Department of Labor, the Colorado Center on Law and Policy, and the National Employment Law Project.
