Minimum wage raises coming to 18 states on New Year's Day

Minimum wage raises coming to 18 states on New Year's Day

A statewide increase goes into effect Sunday.

He continued: "In addition to removing some of the lowest paid people out of the USC net, this fourth increase in the minimum wage is an important part of Fine Gael's efforts to ensure that the economic recovery is fair and benefits everyone in society".

But other states that recently enacted new laws will have more significant increases.

The hourly wage will then increase again to $11 in 2019 and $12 in 2020. President Barack Obama stumped for a minimum wage hike throughout his second term, but Republicans in Congress blocked Democratic proposals from coming up for a vote.

There's some good news for Ohio's minimum wage workers.

The year 2018 will be the 20th anniversary of the legislation that saw the introduction of the minimum wage. For example, since 2016 the minimum wage has increased 14.5% and is scheduled to continue to increase through 2021. "I couldn't imagine how you could live on less than $15 an hour". An establishment is considered a fast food restaurant if it "offers limited service where customers order and pay before eating, including restaurants with tables but without full table service and places that only provide take-out service", according to the state Department of Labor.

The liberal-leaning Cleveland think tank estimates another 478,000 workers who earn a little more than minimum wage will likely get a bump in pay because employers will adjust their pay scales to reflect the higher state rate. The minimum wage for employees of smaller businesses with fewer than 11 employees will be $12/hour. He's hopeful the wage increases will stop.
