Several States Raised Minimum Wage

According to Findlaw which picked up an article from US Today, several states raised their minimum wage effective January 1, 2014. As they explain:

Workers in 13 states will see the minimum wage increase in 2014, including New Jersey, Connecticut, California, New York, and Rhode Island, reports USA Today.

Californians will eventually see the state minimum wage rise to $10 by 2016, but will have to wait until July 2014 to see it rise to $9 per hour. (In cities such as San Jose and San Francisco, however, the local minimum wage already exceeds $10 an hour.)
