Millions of Americans will be getting a raise in the new year, thanks to minimum wage hikes in many states.
A total of 27 states are set to increase the minimum wage next year, with most taking effect on January 1st.
11 states will raise the minimum wage by more than $1: Arizona, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Illlinois, Maine, Nebraska, New Jersey, New York, and Virginia.
And here in California, the minimum wage will be one of the highest in the nation at $15.50... But Washington D.C. has an even higher minimum wage of $16.10 -- and it's scheduled to go up again in July.
