Michigan teenagers who have jobs might see a pay raise this week.
Michigan's subminimum wage, a wage paid to employees younger than 18, will jump from $6.55 to $7.25 when the federal minimum wage rises to that rate on Friday.
Administrator Jack Finn of Michigan's Wage & Hour Division says the federal wage increase will not affect Michigan's minimum wage of $7.40 per hour.
Under Michigan law, the subminimum wage is set at either the federal minimum wage or 85 percent of the state minimum wage, whichever is higher.
Many teenagers under 18 already earn more than the federal minimum wage.
