The minimum wage is set to increase 30 cents for non-tipped employees in Ohio in January of next year. 

According to the Ohio Department of Development, the change comes as a part of a Constitutional Amendment passed in 2006, which states that Ohio's minimum wage shall increase on January 1st of each year according to the rate of inflation. 
 
Tipped employees will also be given an increase of 15 cents per hour, plus tips. 
 
The new minimum wage will apply to businesses grossing over $283,000 a year as of January 1st.
