Ohio's minimum wage will increase in January
Ohio's minimum wage will increase by 30 cents to $7.70 an hour at the start of 2012. Officials at the state Department of Commerce said Friday that the increase is part of a constitutional amendment voters approved in 2006, which says minimum wage will increase each year at the rate of inflation.
The $7.70 rate applies to workers 16 and older who don't get tips. The wage for tipped employees will be $3.85, a 15 cent increase.
The wage will be required from employers who gross more than $283,000 annually, up from the current $271,000.
For employees at smaller companies, and for 14- and 15-year-old workers, the minimum wage is set to match the federal minimum wage, currently $7.25 per hour.
Michigan’s minimum wage is $7.40 an hour.
