Ohio Minimum Wage to Increase to $9.30

Ohio’s minimum wage will increase from $8.80 an hour for non-tipped employees to $9.30 an hour beginning Jan. 1, according to the Ohio Department of Commerce. The minimum wage will apply to employees of businesses with annual gross receipts of more than $342,000 a year.
