Minimum Wage Increase

On January 1, 2020, the California minimum wage will increase to $12.00/hour for employers with 25 employees or less and $13.00/hour for employers with 26 employees or more.

Cities and counties, however, are allowed to enact their own higher minimum wage rates for employees working within their local jurisdiction. Employers with local minimum wage ordinances must follow those ordinances in place of the state minimum wage.
