Minimum wage to increase Jan. 1st

The New Year comes with a pay increase for some.

 

Starting tomorrow, Michigan will increase its minimum wage to $9.87 per hour.

 

Jennifer Fields, a manager for the state labor department, says increases will happen annually as long as Michigan's unemployment rate stays below 8.5 percent.

 

Workers who receive tips will also start to earn more in the new year. Their pay goes to $3.75 an hour as long as they report enough in tips to equal the minimum wage.

 

There's also a sub-minimum wage for workers ages 16 and 17, set at $8.39 an hour.
