Although the raise will help poor working Ohioans, but $8.30 per hour still leaves a full-time worker about $3,000 short of the poverty line for a family of three and this is why there is a push from many workers to pass a state-level $15 per hour minimum wage.

A group is circulating petitions to put raising Michigan's minimum wage to $12 an hour by 2022 on the November ballot.

As of December 31, minimum wage in Upstate New York has increased to $10.40 per hour (not including Westchester, Suffolk, Nassau Counties, and New York City), and $11.75 for fast food workers outside of New York City.

Another minimum wage hike will be coming for NY workers Sunday. This is the third increase for fast-food employees in NY since a state wage board recommended the pay raises in 2015.

Of the 22 European Union member states with a minimum wage, only workers in Luxembourg (€1,999 per month) receive a higher monthly minimum wage than workers in Ireland, who take home €1,563 per month, according to the report, valid as of January 1, 2017.

Some cities in the Bay Area will have an increase in wages that will be higher. Businesses have stated that if they pay less than $15 an hour, they have retention issues.

However, the minimum wage increases only apply to restaurants that are part of a chain of 30 or more locations nationwide. The minimum wage for employees of smaller businesses with fewer than 11 employees will be $12/hour. Lawmakers later changed the law to only require employers to make up the difference when tips don't exceed the minimum wage.

Minimum wage increases are expected to have a "ripple effect" in OH, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer, as businesses increase wages for entry level employees, they typically also raise the wages of those in the upper tiers, such as supervisors and managers.
