On September 29, 2014, the Ohio Department of Commerce announced that the state minimum wage will increase to $8.10 on January 1, 2015, for non-tipped employees and to $4.05 per hour for tipped employees. The increased minimum wage will apply to employees of businesses that have annual gross receipts of more than $297,000 per year.

For employees at smaller companies (with annual gross receipts of $292,000 or less per year in 2014 or $297,000 or less per year after January 1, 2015) and for 14- and 15-year-old workers, the state minimum wage is $7.25 per hour. For these employees, the state minimum wage is tied to the federal minimum wage.
