Several states to raise minimum wage tomorrow

(FOX19) -

More than a dozen states are raising the minimum wage tomorrow. 

Topping the list is Washington at $9.32 an hour. Thousands of hospitality and transportation workers will see their wages go up to even $15.00 an hour. 

Employees are welcoming the raise but many business owners are preparing to let some of them go.  

Leeann Subelbia of Filo Foods says, "the pie is only so big, so you know if you give that into labor, something has to go and I haven't even decided what. I love my employees so I don't know what to do." 

Several states will soon be seeing a minimum wage including Ohio. Workers in the Buckeye State will be getting an extra dime per hour at $7.95 an hour. 

All the sates that will see a minimum wage increase tomorrow: 

  • Ohio
  • Missouri 
  • Washington
  • Oregon
  • Arizona 
  • Colorado
  • Connecticut
  • Florida
  • New Jersey
  • Montana
  • Rhode Island
  • Vermont
  • New York

A recent Washington Post poll shows at least 2/3 of Americans workers should be paid more.
