Ohio's minimum wage to increase in 2018”

An amendment passed by OH voter in November 2006 says Ohio's minimum wage increases each year by the rate of inflation.

Ohioans on minimum wage will see a slight increase in their paychecks starting January 1, 2018.

NDP leader Wab Kinew said earlier this year if elected premier in 2020 he would push to raise the minimum wage to $15 per hour with yearly increases. Tipped employees will go up from $4.08 to $4.15.

Premier Brian Pallister has said increasing the minimum wage to $15 per hour would stymie job growth.

The state minimum wage is tied to the Consumer Price Index for urban wage earners and clerical workers for the 12-month period prior to September. The CPI-U increased by 1.939% over the year ending August 2017.

Just under a percent of Montana's workforce earns minimum wage, which is a slight tick down from the number in the Department of Labor and Industry's report a year ago.

In 2017, the industry with the largest number of workers earning minimum wage was the accommodations and food industry followed by the retail trade industry.
