Maine's minimum wage to increase to $10 an hour

MINIMUM WAGE

At the time the law passed, the country's first minimum wage was $0.25 per hour.

The second in a series of statewide minimum wage increases begins today.

New York City fast-food workers will be paid $15 an hour beginning December 31, 2018.

A new year on Monday will bring a slight increase in New Jersey's minimum wage.

"This is the fourth time that the Fine Gael-led Government has introduced an increase to the minimum wage since it was cut in 2010". Cuomo estimates more than 2.3 million people will benefit from the wage increase.

Ohio's minimum wage is going to raise beginning on January 1, 2018. The 50-cent increase translates to an extra $1,040 per year. Cathy Young, R-Olean, and Goodell for making sure the increase to $15 is phased in over the next few years.

Ohio's hourly minimum wage is about to rise again, with the rate going up by 15 cents an hour Monday from $8.15 to $8.30.

For fast-food workers outside of New York City, the minimum wage will rise to $12.75 an hour on Dec. 31, 2018, $13.75 an hour on Dec. 31, 2019 and $14.50 an hour on Dec. 31, 2020.

"In many cases, our employers are paying beyond minimum wage", he said. Employees seem to feel that it does not matter, if you switch jobs or not when getting paid so little.

"The minimum wage increase, new paid family leave requirements and the state's proposed employee scheduling regulations are concerning to employers in the area", he said. The minimum wage covers fast-food workers at more than 130 chains operating in NY, including Arby's, Burger King, Chick-fil-A, Dairy Queen, Domino's Pizza, KFC, McDonalds, Panera Bread, Pizza Hut, Starbucks, Subway, Taco Bell and Wendy's.
