On 13 June 2021, the counter-proposal to the minimum wage initiative was accepted. The canton of Basel-Stadt will thus introduce a cantonal minimum wage of CHF 21.
The date of entry into force of the Minimum Wage Act has not yet been determined. This will be scheduled by the Government of the Canton of Basel-Stadt.
After the minimum wage has been approved by the people, the enforcement of the law must be regulated in the form of an ordinance. The corresponding work has already been initiated.
