Ohio “did the math” and has set the minimum wage for 2014 — $7.95 per hour. Please note, only the Ohio businesses with annual gross receipts of more than $292,000, are asked to comply.
Ohio’s increase is tied to the Federal minimum wage.
There are 21 states with minimum wage rates that exceed the Federal rate of $7.25 per hour (including Ohio).
With the start of the new year, employers are keeping the minimum wage increase in mind as they anticipate their staff needs for 2014. One way to get the most value out of those payroll dollars is to hire reliable, skilled workers.
