  • Ontario Minimum Wage Hike Now in Effect

Maine's minimum wage will increase to $10 an hour in the new year thanks to a law approved by voters in 2016. Of the 13 states that raised their minimum wage in 2014, 12 saw employment growth.[4] When employees believe they are being adequately compensated for their hard work, businesses see better productivity and decreased turnover.

A group is circulating petitions to put raising Michigan's minimum wage to $12 an hour by 2022 on the November ballot.

It was announced back in October 2017's Budget that the Irish minimum wage would be increased, with the new sum to be tallied in 2018.

The hourly rate will increase to $10.40 for most workers, with with fast food workers seeing an increase to $11.75. And that is the same rate for smaller companies with annual gross receipts of $305,000 or less per year, after January 1, 2018. Cuomo estimates more than 2.3 million people will benefit from the wage increase. Lawmakers later changed the law to only require employers to make up the difference when tips don't exceed the minimum wage. And while states like OH and Kentucky have blocked wage increases, others like Colorado and Hawaii just instituted pay raises of nearly a dollar. Employees seem to feel that it does not matter, if you switch jobs or not when getting paid so little.

Along with a new policy implementing paid family leave that begins Monday, Cuomo said the initiatives "continue to protect the wallets of middle class New Yorkers". The new employee scheduling regulations that are now in a public comment period, adds additional costs, paperwork and scheduling challenges to the backs of employers.
