Here's where the minimum wage is going up in 2018

Across the country, many Americans will ring in 2018 with a raise.
On December 31 and January 1, the minimum wage will go up in 18 states and about 20 cities and counties, according to an analysis by the National Employment Law Project.

In some cases, the increases put employees closer to a $15 an hour minimum wage, or what workers' rights advocates call the "living wage."

In New York state, the minimum wage for fast food workers outside New York City will rise from $10.75 to $11.75 over the weekend. It will hit $15 an hour by July 2021.

Nyiasha Colon, a 20-year-old who works at a Dunkin' Donuts in Rochester, New York and currently makes $11.50 an hour, said she's looking forward to the increase, even if it's small.
