California Minimum Wage Increases Approaching

With the 2018 halfway mark upon us, we also approach the mid-year minimum wage increases scheduled to take effect July 1 throughout various cities and counties in California. Although the current California minimum wage is set at $10.50/hour for employers with 25 employees or less and $11.00/hour for employers with 26 employees or more, various local ordinances have been enacted that set the minimum wage at a higher rate.

Although these laws have been passed for various reasons, the ultimate goal is to reach the $15.00/hour minimum wage at a faster pace than the rest of the California, which is scheduled to reach the $15.00/hour rate by January 1, 2022, for employers with 26 employees or more and by January 1, 2023, for employers with 25 employees or less.

The following cities and counties will be experiencing a minimum wage increase effective July 1, 2018. As always, be sure to check your city’s local ordinances for the most up-to-date information.
