OHIO (WOIO) - Ohio minimum wage for non-tipped employees is rising from $8.70 to $8.80 an hour starting Jan. 1.

Base pay for tipped employees is rising from $4.35 to $4.40 an hour.

Employees will bring home $325 for a 40-hour work week with pay at $8.80 an hour.

In 2006, Ohioans passed a constitutional amendment that raises the minimum wage each year to account for inflation.

If a business made less than $323,000 in 2020, minimum wage remains at $7.25, which is the federal minimum wage.

Employers can also pay employees under the age of 16 at a rate of $7.25.
