Ohio Minimum Wage Increases January 1, 2015
The Constitutional Amendment passed by Ohio voters in November 2006 states that Ohio’s minimum wage shall increase on January 1st of each year by the rate of inflation. The state minimum wage is tied to the Consumer Price Index (CPI).
Ohio’s minimum wage is scheduled to increase on January 1, 2015 from $7.95 per hour to $8.10 per hour.
Any student employee who earns under $8.10 will receive an increase to $8.10 effective December 20, 2014.
About Student Employment

Federal Work-Study Awards
The Federal Work-Study Program is a federal financial aid program for eligible undergraduate and graduate students. While all students are eligible for jobs designated as On-Campus Regular student employment, only students who receive Federal Work-Study Awards are eligible for jobs designated as On-Campus Work-Study. A limited number of off-campus tutoring positions are available to Work-Study recipients.
