Minimum wage in Ohio to go up slightly

UNDATED (WKRC) -- Minimum wage workers in Ohio will see a slight bump in their pay in the new year.

Workers in Ohio and 12 other states and four cities are increasing the minimum wage on January first.

In Ohio, hourly wages will increase ten cents, to $7.95 per hour. The federal minimum wage is $7.25.
 
Ohio's minimum wage rate is tied to the Consumer Price Index, which increased 1.5% from September 1, 2012 to August 31, 2013.

Ohio labor officials say the increase is still not enough to achieve a living wage.
