Michigan's minimum wage officially $9.25
Beginning January 1, minimum wage for workers in Michigan is now $9.25 per hour.
Today marks the last scheduled minimum wage increase under a law passed in 2014.
Starting in 2019, the minimum wage is set to increase each year along with inflation unless the unemployment rate is high.
The new minimum wage is a 35 cent jump from last year's wage of $8.90 per hour. Before the law passed in 2014, the minimum wage in Michigan was $7.40 and jumped nearly two dollars back in 2006.
There is a petition drive underway to increase the minimum wage to $12 per hour by the year 2022.
