Very valid point. It is not a simple process to “raise” the minimum wage, the impact effects all employers and truthfully our economy currently cannot support a doubling of the minimum wage. As with anything it needs to be done gradually.
Ohio raising minimum wage by only 15 cents an hour at least is a start in the right direction. Doubling the minimum is not viable.
Ohio is one of 23 states that have a minimum wage higher than the $7.25 federal minimum. Washington has the highest rate at $9.32 per hour.
