Rising Inflation Will Lead to California Minimum Wage Hike in 2023: 5 Key Takeaways for Employers
California leads the nation in the call for higher minimum wages, emanating from the agricultural fields and reaching nearly every industry. Raising wages has been a major focus in the California Legislature – as well as in federal and state courts – and employers in the state will likely see a higher wage hike than expected next year. The minimum wage was supposed to reach $15 an hour for all employers in the Golden State by January 1, 2023, but Governor Gavin Newsom recently projected that the rate will rise to $15.50 due to record-high inflation. Combined with labor shortages and supply chain disruptions, the costs associated with a higher minimum wage will undeniably impact businesses in 2023. Increased wages mean higher employer-side payroll tax obligations and other related costs and will further strain businesses that are already reeling from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and the current economic environment.
