This Will Increase the Minimum Wage in California in 2023

Thousands of California minimum wage earners will see their wages increase starting January 1, 2023.

According to the Department of Labor Relations (DIR), the minimum wage for all businesses, regardless of the number of workers, will be $15.50 an hour.

The annual increase is part of a law passed in California that calls for a gradual increase in the minimum wage from $10 an hour in 2017 to $15.50 an hour in 2023.

The wage increase applies to the entire state of California, however, some cities and counties have enacted ordinances that allow for greater increases in the minimum wage.

For such cities, “the employer must adhere to stricter standards; i.e., that which is most beneficial to the employee”, and should therefore be governed by the payment of the highest minimum wage.

DIR further reminds that the minimum wage is a requirement for all employers in California. According to official information, “the minimum wage is an obligation of the employer that cannot be waived by any agreement, including collective agreements.”
