It may not be $15.00 an hour, but at least the Michigan minimum wage has gone up from $8.50 to $8.90 and hour.  Michigan workers who make the minimum wage are getting a 40 cents an hour raise.

This is the second straight yearly increase under a 2014 law that gradually raised the wage by 25 percent.

The 40 cent increase means those working full time will earn $16 more a week, or $832 a year.  Many making the minimum wage work part time and tend to be younger.

In 2018, Michigan's minimum will rise to $9.25, after which it will increase with inflation every year but no more than 3.5 percent.  Read the latest here at
