Ohio Minimum Wage Going Up In 2014
Ohio’s minimum wage is going up in the new year.
The minimum wage is going up ten cents from $7.85 an hour to $7.95. The automatic boost comes from a policy known as indexing, which ties the minimum wage to increases in the cost of living.

Temple predicts the ten cent increase in 2014 will create $38 million in new economic growth.
