The winners and losers in Oregon’s minimum wage hike 

Minimum wage earners in the Portland area will see the biggest raise in two decades kick in on Saturday, the second of seven increases that has thrilled some workers but left business owners wondering if they can keep up.

The hourly rate will jump $1.50, to $11.25, within Portland’s urban growth boundary – the most populous parts of Multnomah, Washington and Clackamas counties – thanks to 2016 legislation that tied the annual increases to geography.
