Dec. 15 editorial “Ohio’s frayed safety net” stated incorrectly that Ohio’s minimum wage does not increase with inflation.

An academic study cited in the Dec. 15 editorial “Ohio’s frayed safety net” stated incorrectly that Ohio’s minimum wage does not increase with inflation. Under a voter-approved 2006 amendment to the Ohio Constitution, the state’s minimum wage rises annually by the inflation rate.

Ohio’s minimum wage is scheduled to increase Jan. 1 from $7.85 to $7.95 an hour for workers who do not receive tips, and from $3.93 to $3.98 for tipped employees. The higher minimum wage will apply to employers with gross receipts of more than $292,000 a year. For smaller employers, the state minimum wage, like the federal wage, is $7.25 an hour.
