(CLEVELAND) - In less than a year, Cleveland's mayor wants the minimum wage to increase to $15 an hour for city workers.
Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson says the increase will need to be negotiated with unions before implementation. The increase would affect about 500 workers and cost nearly $2 million a year. Jackson wants it to go in effect in April, 2018.
The minimum wage in Cleveland is now ten dollars an hour. It's $8.15 an hour in Ohio.
