Restaurant and other workers who rely on tips will also not be making the new minimum wage.

The new figure will be set at €9.55 per hour - an increase of 30c per hour.

Maine's minimum wage will increase to $10 an hour in the new year thanks to a law approved by voters in 2016.

He continued: "In addition to removing some of the lowest paid people out of the USC net, this fourth increase in the minimum wage is an important part of Fine Gael's efforts to ensure that the economic recovery is fair and benefits everyone in society". And that is the same rate for smaller companies with annual gross receipts of $305,000 or less per year, after January 1, 2018.

ME is one of 18 states, including three in New England, raising wages in January.

For fast-food workers outside of New York City, the minimum wage will rise to $12.75 an hour on Dec. 31, 2018, $13.75 an hour on Dec. 31, 2019 and $14.50 an hour on Dec. 31, 2020. This marks the second increase toward a statewide $15 minimum wage. There is no cost to employers. The increase will be phased in over a longer period for workers in the rest of the state.

Horrigan said phasing in the increases will be beneficial to businesses as it allows them to adapt. "Wages continue to increase in Chautauqua County because we're continuing to see economic development".

Wendy Block is a spokeswoman with the Michigan Chamber of Commerce. For these employees, the state wage is tied to the federal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour, which requires an act of Congress and the President's signature to change. "Running a business and keeping people employed in and of itself is challenging, additional costs and mandates from New York State make it even more hard". Tipped employees must be paid at least $5 an hour by employers. "Additionally, more costs and regulations make NY less competitive with other regions in terms of economic growth". The new employee scheduling regulations that are now in a public comment period, adds additional costs, paperwork and scheduling challenges to the backs of employers.
