Minimum wage in Ohio increases to $7.70 per hour today

Associated Press

COLUMBUS

Ohioans who earn minimum wage will see a boost in their hourly pay beginning today. The state’s minimum wage has increased 30 cents to $7.70 per hour.

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, up 15 cents, but their total pay cannot be less than $7.70 hourly.

The wage will be required from employers who gross more than $283,000 annually, up from the current $271,000.

For smaller companies, and for 14- and 15-year-old workers, the minimum wage matches the federal rate, currently $7.25 per hour.
