Ohio's Minimum Wage Increases In 2018

The saying, "every dollar counts", will be tested again, as Ohioans once again see a raise in minimum wage next year.

Under a state constitutional amendment passed by voters in 2004, the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity adjusts the wage each year based on changes in a federal consumer price index.

A group is circulating petitions to put raising Michigan's minimum wage to $12 an hour by 2022 on the November ballot.

On Dec. 31, the minimum wage in New York City will increase to $13, and for workers employed by small businesses with 10 or fewer employees, it will increase to $12.


Ohio's minimum wage is going to raise beginning on January 1, 2018.

Some cities in the Bay Area will have an increase in wages that will be higher. Restaurant and other workers who rely on tips will also not be making the new minimum wage.

Horrigan said phasing in the increases will be beneficial to businesses as it allows them to adapt. "Wages continue to increase in Chautauqua County because we're continuing to see economic development". "Running a business and keeping people employed in and of itself is challenging, additional costs and mandates from New York State make it even more hard". The disparity in pay is so great that those at the bottom of the wage ladder could be earning an additional £5.24 per hour if their pay had risen at the same rate over the last 20 years as the pay of FTSE 100 chief executives.

"The paid family leave requirements of New York State have taken money out of employee paychecks and have created scheduling challenges for employers in a time when finding employees is hard".
