As of December 31, minimum wage in Upstate New York has increased to $10.40 per hour (not including Westchester, Suffolk, Nassau Counties, and New York City), and $11.75 for fast food workers outside of New York City.

The wage applies to all Florida workers who are covered by the federal minimum wage, according to the Department of Economic Opportunity.

A group is circulating petitions to put raising Michigan's minimum wage to $12 an hour by 2022 on the November ballot.

Starting Monday, small companies - those with 25 or fewer employees - will have to pay workers at least $10.50 an hour, up from $10.

The second in a series of statewide minimum wage increases begins today. Then, the wage will increase according to a formula.

The minimum wage is going up in some states and cities, including here in Florida. Employees seem to feel that it does not matter, if you switch jobs or not when getting paid so little. The 50-cent increase translates to an extra $1,040 per year.

Employers are required by the US Department of Labor and also by the State of Ohio Government, to have posted in their businesses the Ohio Labor Law Posters to be in what is called compliance. Instead of increasing minimum wage, Goodell said he has advocated for other ways to help, such as increasing the earned income tax credit and focusing on job mentoring and training.

Whether it's five cents, as in 2017 or the fifteen cents for 2018, minimum wage workers will use what they can make to help them in their quest for making a decent living.

However, Goodell said he does sympathize with the working poor and how hard it is to balance a budget on minimum wage.
