Ohio Dems Submit Bill to Raise State Minimum Wage to $10.10
Northeastern Ohio leftists Rep. Mike Foley (D-Cleveland) and Rep. Bob Hagan (D-Youngstown) have introduced legislation to increase the state minimum wage to $10.10, which they say will help poor Ohioans and punish unfair employers.
House Bill 502 (HB 502), submitted in late March, would increase Ohio’s hourly minimum wage from its current rate of $7.95 to the $10.10 demanded by “progressive” groups across the country.
