A proposition to increase California’s minimum wage has been delayed until November 2024.

The “Living Wage Act of 2022,” an initiative that proposes measured increases to California’s existing minimum wage ($1 per year starting in 2023 raising the minimum wage to $18 for all employers by 2026) was intended for a 2022 November vote. However, legal efforts to push the proposition onto the 2022 ballot failed causing delay until November 2024. Also included in the ballot measure is a built-in escalator which will continue annual upward adjustments of the minimum wage aimed at keeping pace with cost-of-living increases.
