A number of states are kicking the new year off with hourly wage increases, according to data compiled by National Employment Law Project.
Some states like California and New York will ease into the increases that will eventually reach $15 an hour. Other states like Florida, Ohio, and Missouri will ring in new cost-of-living index adjustments.
