Starting January 1, minimum wage workers in 13 states and four cities will receive higher paychecks. The largest increase is in Washington State where the minimum wage will go up to $9.32 per hour. Other states, that will see a boost include: Ohio, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Florida, Missouri, Colorado and Oregon. The changes have been partly fueled by nationwide walkouts this year by fast-food workers. Nineteen states currently have minimum wages higher that the federal level of $7.25 an hour. After January 1 changes, that number rises to 21.
