Minimum wage hike goes into effect in NY, NJ

Ontario Minimum Wage Hike Now in Effect

Under the new program, all employees who work in the private sector will be eligible for 12 weeks of paid family leave when caring for an infant, a family member with a serious health condition or to relieve family pressures when someone is called to active military service.

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.

Beginning Sunday, the state's minimum wage will increase to $13 an hour for employees at New York City businesses with at least 11 employees and $12 an hour for workers at New York City companies with no more than 10 employees.

Ohio's hourly minimum wage is about to rise again, with the rate going up by 15 cents an hour Monday from $8.15 to $8.30. The 50-cent increase translates to an extra $1,040 per year.

He continued: "In addition to removing some of the lowest paid people out of the USC net, this fourth increase in the minimum wage is an important part of Fine Gael's efforts to ensure that the economic recovery is fair and benefits everyone in society". The increase will be phased in over a longer period for workers in the rest of the state.

In 2017, Ireland had the second highest rate of minimum wage of countries who have a minimum wage structure in the European Union, according to a report published by Eurostat earlier this month. When the wages increase, it makes it "cost effective" for employers to look for alternatives like self-check outs and other automated systems. For example, since 2016 the minimum wage has increased 14.5% and is scheduled to continue to increase through 2021.
