The Department of Industrial Relations reminds California’s employers and workers that effective Jan. 1, 2016, the state’s minimum wage will increase to $10 per hour.
“This increase in the minimum wage is California’s second increase in 18 months. Those earning minimum wage will now have a bit more to take home every paycheck,” said Labor Commissioner Julie Su. The Labor Commissioner’s Office is a division of DIR.
Governor Jerry Brown signed legislation on September 25, 2013, raising California’s minimum wage to $9 per hour on July 1, 2014, with a final adjustment to $10 per hour on January 1, 2016. It marked the first increase inCalifornia’s hourly minimum since 2008, when the minimum wage was raised 50 cents to $8.
