Ohio is moving one step closer to raising its minimum wage rate.
On Monday, Ohio’s attorney general approved the next step of a proposal to amend the state constitution to raise the minimum from the current $8.55 an hour rate to $13 an hour by 2025
The initial petition contains a “fair and truthful” summary of the proposal and the petition’s 1,000 signatures are valid, said Ohio Attorney General David Yost. He did not take a position on the merits of the amendment itself.
The proposed amendment goes next to the Ohio Ballot Board to determine whether the petition contains a single or multiple issues. Backers hope to put the amendment on the November ballot.
