Minimum wage to rise 15 cents

Ohio’s minimum wage is going up 15 cents to $7.85 beginning Tuesday.

The Ohio Department of Commerce also says the new minimum for tipped employees will be $3.93 — an increase of 8 cents an hour.

The state minimum wage is adjusted annually because of an amendment to the Ohio Constitution approved by voters in 2006. Increases are linked to the Consumer Price Index. A year ago, the minimum wage jumped 30 cents at the beginning of 2012.

The nonprofit Economic Policy Institute says the 2013 increase will benefit 215,000 low-wage workers in the state and will mean an extra $340 per year.

Ohio is one of 10 states that will increase its minimum wage Tuesday.
