Minimum wage hikes for many take effect Sunday

However, businesses are opposed to the increase in wages, believing they will lead to higher prices and more automation.

New York's Minimum wage is set to increase at the start of 2017.

The statewide minimum wage will increase to 11.50 in 2018, $12.00 in 2019 and $13.50 in 2020.

Voters in Arizona, Colorado, Maine and Washington approved a rise in pay during the 2016 election campaign.

"Minimum wage isn't meant to be livable, though", she said.

The minimum wage rates being so low hits women harder than it does men.

In Maryland, the minimum wage will increase from $8.75 to $9.25. If a payment aims to remunerate the same type of work which is also remunerated by payment of the minimum wage ("functional equivalence") the payment may be used to satisfy the minimum wage requirement. The employee demanded payment of the full amount of the attendance premium in addition to an hourly wage of Euro 8.50 gross.

Minimum wage workers in NY get a raise as of Saturday, December 31. New Jersey splits the difference with a $0.06-per-hour boost. For the rest of the state, the wage will now be set at $9.70.

Increasingly states have had to step in where the Federal government has not. The other states seeing increases are Arkansas, Connecticut, Hawaii, Michigan and Vermont. In July, he said the federal minimum wage should be hiked to at least $10 an hour. Boosts of $1 or more per hour will also take place in MA and Washington state.

Governor Jerry Brown signed a bill earlier this year raising California's hourly minimum wage to $10.50 on January 1, up from the current $10 per hour.

Florida workers making minimum wage may notice a small increase in their pay checks next month.

Even so, there are still a large number of holdouts among the states. The federal minimum wage hasn't changed since 2009.

Tipped employees now making minimum wage haven't been left out.

Lawmakers promise the minimum will reach $15 an hour after that. Twenty-four states, mostly in the South and Midwest, do not allow ballot initiatives. Nevertheless, the debate over whether minimum-wage increases are positive or negative for the economy as a whole is likely to continue not just in 2017 but for years to come.
