Ohio’s minimum wage increasing in 2019

"With the historic increase in the minimum wage, NY continues to set a national example in the fight for economic justice", the governor, who sneered at a $15 minimum wage increase just three years ago, said in a statement. "I think it's also fair to say the hopes of what a minimum wage might have done to workers were also exaggerated". "Ohio's new minimum wage will be worth just 72 percent of what the federal minimum wage was worth in 1968, $11.83 in today's dollars". The institute said the increases will boost wages for affected workers by about $5.4 billion.

More than two years after Governor Andrew Cuomo declared victory in the Fight for $15 campaign, an initial group of New York City's lowest paid workers will finally see the promised figure reflected in their paychecks.

Besides New York, workers in up to 21 other states and the District of Columbia will receive higher minimum wages next year, according to National Employment Law Project report given exclusively to USA TODAY. The campaign reminds New Yorkers that all minimum wage workers across the state will receive a raise on December 31, and educates them about the steps they should take if they do not receive their raises.
