“The Wage and Hour Division of the Department of Labor has published the current 14c certificate numbers through April 2019.  We have analyzed these numbers and have included a summary and State-by-State breakdown of the changes since January 2016 through April 2019.  Click to see a summary of the changes and the specific breakdown of the changes by State.

WINTAC Researcher Jenean Jacobs has conducted an analysis of the Wage and Hour Division’s most recent data on 14c certificates across the country as of April 2019. Here is a summary of the changes in the number of 14c certificate holders and workers in subminimum wage employment since we began the study in January 2016:

  1. Since January 2016, there has been a reduction of 1,026 valid 14c certificates. This is a reduction of 218 valid certificates since last reported in July 2018.
  2. Since January 2016, there has been a reduction of 145,229 individuals reported as covered under a 14c certificate. This represents a further reduction of 22,017 individuals since last reported in July 2018.
  3. If one counts all of the missing data fields in April 2019 as individuals actively covered by the 14c certificate and working in subminimum wage employment, the reduction since January 2016 through April 2019 is 120,084 individuals, which represents a further reduction of 39,739 individuals since last reported in July 2018.
