Ohio Department of Commerce announced recently that Ohio’s minimum wage will increase by 15 cents to $8.10 per hour for non-tipped employees and 7 cents to $4.05 per hour for tipped employees starting January 1, 2015.

Based on a constitutional amendment passed by Ohio voters in 2006, minimum wage is required to increase on January 1st of each year by the rate of inflation.  The Consumer Price Index rose 1.6 percent between September 2013 and August 2014.

The minimum-wage increases apply to employees of businesses with annual gross receipts of more than $297,000 per year.  For employees at smaller companies ($297,000 or less per year after January 1, 2015) and for 14– and 15-year olds, the state minimum wage is $7.25 per hour.  For these employees, the state wage is tied to the federal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour, which requires an act of Congress to change.
