Despite well-publicized moves by retailers such as Walmart, Starbucks and Whole Foods to raise the pay of their lowest-level workers, 72% of organizations with minimum-wage employees have no plans to pay them more.

A new study by Aon Hewitt found that most of those organizations (59%) say they won’t raise their pay scales until required to do so by law.

The minimum wage increased in 14 states on Jan. 1: Alaska, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Hawaii, Massachusetts, Michigan, Nebraska, New York, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Vermont and West Virginia.
