Current Minimum Wage in Ohio

by

The federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) sets the “floor” minimum wage for eligible workers in the U.S. But, many states and some local governments set their own minimum wage. Workers are entitled to be paid the highest minimum wage that applies where they work, whether it is set by federal, state, or local law. 

The minimum wage in Ohio is $8.70 an hour, for employers that gross more than $299,000 annually. Because this is higher than the federal minimum wage of $7.25, employees in Ohio must be paid at least $8.70 an hour if their employer meets this sales threshold. Employers with lower gross sales may pay the federal minimum wage.
