Florida's minimum wage rose from $8.65 to $10 starting Thursday.
The increase is part of a constitutional amendment approved by voters last year that will eventually raise the state minimum wage to $15 by 2026.
To reach the $15, the state's minimum wage will increase by a dollar each September for the next five years.
Florida's minimum wage is already higher than the federal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour.
