    Is this raise for everyone or only people with minimum wage now?

      Everyone must make at least the minimum wage. For example, if your worker is making $7.25 today and the 2017 wage is $8.25 then that worker must receive a raise in pay to the new minimum wage. Other workers who make equal to or above the new wage are not required to have a raise in pay, too. Many employers will provide adjustments, but there is no requirement.
