Ohio $15 minimum wage movement continues as employers adopt pay increases, supporters plan ballot is

CLEVELAND, Ohio ó The push for a $15 minimum wage emerged here more than five years ago, often with protests outside fast-food restaurants, where hundreds of demonstrators demanded higher wages for workers.

Many thought it a fledgling campaign that would soon fizzle. But what started on the fringes has influenced the mainstream.

On this Labor Day, we look at the current status of the local $15 minimum wage movement, some of the opposition it still faces, as well as how the movementís message may have played a role in getting some employers to increase their minimum wage.

These include employers the movement didnít target. Fifth Third Bancorp will raise its minimum wage to $18 on Oct. 28, after going from $12 to $15 in January 2018. Ohioís minimum wage, currently $8.55, rises annually if the federal inflation rate goes up.

1. Thank you, Texas Towelie. This Ohioan appreciates your posts...

While the state of our country depresses me mightily on many levels and continues to cast a pall over pretty much damn everything and everyone, your posts help keep us informed of the struggles towards sanity that still exist.

In regards to Ohio, itís definitely a struggle with way too few shafts of light piercing the cloud cover of Crap ass treatment of Ohioans to improve their lifestyles but every little battleground that still exists helps keep us from the numbing gloom!
