On January 1, 2016, the minimum wage will increase to $10 per hour. In 2013, Governor Jerry Brown signed into law the bill that would increase California’s minimum wage in two phases. For the first phase, the minimum wage for California employees rose from $8 per hour to $9 per hour beginning July 1, 2014.
