Michigan workers making the minimum wage will see a 35-cents-an-hour raise starting Friday.
The state hourly minimum is rising from $8.15 to $8.50.
That is $14 more a week, or $728 a year, for those working full time.
The increase is the second in 16 months under a 2014 law that gradually boosted the minimum by 25 percent.
The wage will increase to $8.90 in 2017 and $9.25 in 2018. Starting in 2019, it will rise with inflation every year unless the unemployment rate is high.
