Ohio's minimum wage gets a boost

COLUMBUS, OH (FOX19) -

In January of 2013, Ohio's minimum wage is scheduled to increase to $7.85 per hour for non-tipped employees and to $3.93 per hour for tipped employees.

That will mean an increase of .15 an hour for minimum wage employees. Tipped employees will see their wages increase .8 an hour over the 2012 rate.

The increase will apply to employees of businesses with annual gross receipts of more than $288,000 per year.

Back in 2006, voters in Ohio passed a Constitutional Amendment that states Ohio's minimum wage shall increase on January 1 of each year by the rate of inflation.

The Constitutional Amendment is available at: www.legislature.state.oh.us/constitution.cfm?Part=2&Section=34a

For employees at smaller companies that invoice less than $288,000, the state minimum wage is $7.25.  That figure applies to 14 and 15-year-olds as well.

For these employees, the state wage is tied to the federal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour which requires an act of Congress and the President's signature to change.

Minimum wage in Kentucky and Indiana follow the federal guidelines.
