Here’s What You Should Know About Minimum Wage In California

Every state has set a standard minimum wage that employers with a certain number of employees must pay their workers.

In some states, the minimum wage is $7.25 per hour. In California, however, the state minimum wage is $10.50 per hour — and will continue to incrementally increase every year until 2022.

In 2016, California Gov. Brown signed into law a bill that would increase the minimum wage to:

  • $11 per hour on January 1, 2018
  • $12 per hour on January 1, 2019
  • $13 per hour on January 1, 2020
  • $14 per hour on January 1, 2021
  • $15 per hour on January 1, 2022

Employers Who Fail To Follow The Rules

In some instances — whether intentionally or mistakenly — some California employers are failing to abide by the incremental minimum wage pay increases under California Law and not paying their workers the appropriate wage.

Just last year, the minimum wage was $10 per hour. Unfortunately, some employers are still paying that amount today.
