Impact of executive order on minimum wage at Fermilab

As of January 1, 2023, Executive Order 14026 stipulates that the minimum wage rate that generally must be paid to workers performing work on or in connection with covered contracts increased to $16.20 per hour.

Updated seasonal and on-call rates are located on the Compensation/Pay Rates website. These seasonal rates do not include internships that are part of a formal program, however internship positions must also adhere to the new minimum wage rate.
