The Ohio Department of Commerce announced recently that, effective January 1, 2012, the minimum wage for the state of Ohio will increase to $7.70 per hour for non-tipped employees and $3.85 for tipped employees.
Minimum Wage Applies to Employers That Gross More than $283,000 per Year
Effective January 1, 2012, the minimum wage will apply to employers who gross more than $283,000 per year, up from $271,000 in 2011.
Annual Adjustment Is Constitutionally Required
As a result of a constitutional amendment that passed in 2006 an adjustment to the minimum wage must be applied on January 1 of each year. The adjustment is tied to the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for urban wage earners and clerical workers for the 12-month period prior to September. The 1.4% increase in the CPI is rounded to the nearest five cents to calculate the amount of the adjustment.
