Fifteen states and Washington D.C. have taken action to implement state minimum wages that exceed the federal. Ohio is one of only two states to set its minimum wage below the federal, although the national rate applies to most workers here. The current proposal to raise Ohio’s minimum wage to $7.15 is comparable to laws that have passed in other states.
