min wage worker - how much is overtime?

Howdy all, was just wondering what my overtime rate would be if I'm a minimum wage per hour worker? Just want to verify I've been paid the right amount for this week



  • sorry, should have mentioned I'm in Kansas!
  • Hi Bobby!

    In Kansas, the minimum wage is currently $7.25, like the federal minimum wage. To calculate overtime wages, we'd multiply the minimum wage by 1.5, the standard overtime rate, then multiply that result by the number of hours you've worked after 46 hours of work in any given week (as per Kansas overtime law, "Overtime pay is required after 46 hours of work in a work week.").

    This means that your overtime rate is $10.87, or $3.62 more than your usual rate.

    Hope this helps,
