Van Wert independent news

COLUMBUS — Ohio’s minimum wage will increase by 50 cents per hour for non-tipped employees and by 25 cents per hour for tipped employees.

According to the Ohio Department of Commerce, starting January 1, 2022, non-tipped minimum wage workers will make $9.30 per hour, up from $8.80, while tipped employees will make $4.65 an hour, up from $4.40. The new minimum wage will apply to employees of businesses with annual gross receipts of more than $342,000 per year.

For employees at smaller companies with annual gross receipts of $342,000 or less per year after Jan 1. 2022, and for 14- and 15-year-olds, the state minimum wage is $7.25 per hour. For those employees, the state wage is tied to the federal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour, which requires an act of Congress and the President’s signature to change.
