About 12,000 Montanan's will get a raise Wednesday.
That's when Montana's minimum wage will increase ten-cents to $7.90 an hour.
That number is still higher than the federal minimum wage of $7.25.
Montana's minimum wage has been going up with the Consumer Price Index after voters passed an initiative in 2006.
The Department of Labor and Industry says that's to help the state's economy.
"They might have a little more money to buy a couple of extra things at the grocery store or maybe they can actually go out to dinner and do other things so that money gets turned around in the economy," said Casey Kyler-West, Montana Department of Labor and Industry spokeswoman.
Washington State holds the highest minimum wage in the country.
