Work dates vs. Payroll check date question

Ohio's new minimum wage must be paid beginning January 1, 2007. Our first payroll will be dated January 8, 2007 but it will cover days worked 12/17/06 - 12/30/06. Should the new minimum wage be applied to this payroll or the following bi-weekly payroll? Thank you in advance for your reply to this question.

Ohio's new minimum wage law

If the 1/8/7 payroll covers only the period ending 12/30/6, then the 1/8/7 pay need not be calculated at the new minimum wage rate. That is, the wage rate applies to hours worked after 1/1/7 and not to payroll paid after that date for hours worked before that date.
