California city now has nation’s highest minimum wage

Published

on

The new rate is in effect through June 30, 2024 when it will increase again by the Consumer Price Index (CPI-W) adjustment, according to the Fox 11 report.

Earlier this year, California’s minimum wage increased to $15.50 per hour for all employer sizes.

Only DC ($16.50) and Washington ($15.74) have higher minimum pay rates than California as of Jan. 1, 2023, according to the Wage and Hour Division of the U.S. Department of Labor.

Within California, however, nearly 40 cities or counties are paying higher minimum wages than the state itself, according to Paycor:
