Ohio, New York Raise Minimum Wages; Pennsylvania's Remains Unchanged

Ohio raised its minimum wage to $8.30 per hour.
For New York as a whole, it is now $10.40 for standard workers and $11.75 for fast food workers. Those amounts are higher for workers in New York City, Long Island and Westchester.
Pennsylvania's minimum wage remains unchanged at $7.25. The last time it went up was in July 2009 when the federal minimum wage increased to $7.25.
