The Constitutional Amendment passed by Ohio voters in November 2006 states that Ohio’s minimum wage shall increase on January 1 of each year by the rate of inflation. The state minimum wage is tied to the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for urban wage earners and clerical workers for the 12-month period prior to September. This CPI index rose 1.5 percent over the twelve month period from September 1, 2012 to August 31, 2013. The amendment also states that the wage rate for non-tipped employees shall be rounded to the nearest five cents.
