 COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Ohio’s minimum wage has gone up by 15 cents an hour with the beginning of the New Year to $8.10.

The increase also takes the minimum wage of workers who receive tips up 7 cents to $4.05 an hour.

Policy Matters Ohio, a non-partisan organization that studies Ohio’s economy, says the increase will boost the wages of more than 277,000 Ohio workers.

The group estimates the wage increases will produce $36 million in economic growth from higher consumer spending.

Voters in Ohio approved a constitutional amendment in 2006 that calls for annual increases in the hourly wage.
