TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — Ohio’s minimum wage is increasing again and with it should come a boost to about 300,000 low-wage earners, according to one policy group’s estimate.

The minimum wage rose 10 cents to $7.95 per hour at the start of the new year. For tipped employees, the new minimum increased 5 cents per hour to $3.98.

The increases were mandated by Ohio voters who in 2006 approved an amendment to the state constitution that links the minimum wage to inflation.
