Minimum wage workers in 13 states will be taking home higher paychecks starting Jan. 1.

Oklahoma is not one of them.

The largest increase is in Washington where minimum wage will go up to $9.32 per hour

Experts said the nationwide fast food worker walkouts may have contributed to the raise.

Currently 19 states have minimum wages above the federal level of $7.25 per hour.

After Jan. 1, that number will rise to 21.
