On January 1, 2015 Ohio’s minimum wage will increase to $8.10. This increase accords with the 2006 constitutional amendment passed by voters. The amendment requires the rate of minimum wage to increase with the rate of inflation each year. Importantly, this increase applies to employees of businesses that have gross receipts of more than $297,000 per year.

Although this appears to be a nominal amount, Ohio is still one of only 23 states that has a minimum wage that is higher than the federal minimum wage of $7.25.
