Bloomington's Living Wage Ordinance, which went into effect on January 1, 2006, requires covered employers to pay covered employees a living wage: the amount that the City of Bloomington believes is sufficient for a working family to meet basic needs in housing, child care, food, clothing, household items, transportation, health care and taxes.

In 2021 the living wage rate is $13.29 an hour, of which up to $1.99 may be in the form of health insurance available to the covered employee. In 2022, it will be $14.01 an hour, of which $2.10 may be in form of health insurance to the covered employee.

The wage is adjusted annually for inflation.
