WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Minimum wage is going up in Florida in less than a month.

Starting Jan. 1st, the Florida Department of Revenue is mandating that companies add an extra 14 cents an hour. That would set the new minimum wage at $7.93 an hour. The minimum wage for tipped workers in Florida will also rise by 14 cents to $4.91 per hour.

That's more than 50 cents above the national average.

Twelve other states are also increasing their rates.

The increase will affect an estimated 416,000 workers in the state.
