The state minimum wage will increase by 15 cents next year to adjust for inflation.
Officials say non-tipped workers must be paid an hourly wage of at least $8.30 beginning Jan. 1, 2018. Tipped workers are slated to receive a minimum of $4.15 an hour starting next year — a bump of 8 cents.
The new wage only applies to companies with annual gross receipts of more than $305,000 a year. Ohio’s minimum wage for employees at smaller companies along with 14- and 15-year-old workers is tied to the federal minimum wage set by Congress.
