Without any action by their legislatures, employers in 10 states will experience increases in their minimum wage rates in 2012: Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, Ohio, Oregon, Vermont and Washington.

That’s because those states tie annual increases in their wage floor to increases in the cost of living. Nationwide, 18 states have minimum wage levels higher than the federal rate of $7.25 per hour. Find current state minimums at www.dol.gov/whd/minwage/america.htm.
