Saskatchewan's minimum wage will be going up 25 cents this summer.

As of Sept. 1, the minimum hourly wage will be $9.50 per hour, a 2.7 per cent increase, the province said Friday in a news release.

Going up by the same percentage is minimum call-out pay.

Starting Sept. 1, it will be $28.50.

Since March 2007, when the minimum wage was $7.95, it's gone up about 20 per cent.

By law, every two years the province's Minimum Wage Board reviews the wage and makes recommendations to the provincial government.
