LANSING, Mich.--- The first bump in Michigan’s minimum wage hike came Monday.

Wages are up from $7.40 an hour to $8.15.

A 25 percent overall raise will come in annual increments, capping at $9.25 an hour in 2018.

The hike affects about four percent of the state's 2.5 million hourly workers who earn the minimum wage, or lower.

It could help some who make more, since employers likely will adjust their pay scales as well.
