Why Does the Ohio Minimum Wage Change So Often?

The Ohio minimum wage is adjusted annually to reflect fluctuations in the Consumer Price Index (CPI).

The 2015 minimum wage rate represents an 18 percent increase over the 2007 rate after voters amended the State Constitution (Issue 2) to index the minimum wage, meaning that if inflation increases, the rate will adjust to help offset the effect on low-wage workers.

Ohio minimum-wage workers have received an average increase of 16 cents each year in the past eight years to compensate for the rate of inflation.
