The Columbus Dispatch, Oct 11 2007
Ohio's minimum wage will rise 15 cents to $7 an hour on Jan. 1, producing a $6 weekly increase before taxes for a full-time worker.

Waiters, waitresses and other tipped employees will see their minimum go up by 7 cents to $3.50 an hour, not including tips.

"What's the sense of having an election if you're going to turn back the clock and start all over again?" asked Coulter. The retired steelworker from Columbus worked for state Issue 2, the constitutional amendment boosting the minimum wage from $5.15 an hour to $6.85.

"If it's war you want, it's war you'll get," he said.
