Minimum wage workers in Michigan will be getting a pay hike come New Year's Day.


The state's minimum wage is jumping from the current $8.50 an hour to $8.90 an hour.


Michigan’s minimum wage is scheduled to increase to $9.25 an hour in 2018.


While worker's advocate groups continue to push for a $15 an hour, saying workers simply cannot survive on the current minimums, many business leaders oppose a big jump in the minimum wage.
