California Minimum Wage Projected to Increase to $15.50

(Source- CalChamber) - On May 12, 2022, Governor Gavin Newsom announced that California’s minimum wage is projected to increase to $15.50 per hour for all employers, regardless of size, on January 1, 2023.

The current minimum wage is $15 per hour for employers with 26 or more employees and $14 per hour for employers with 25 or fewer employees. Small businesses anticipated increasing their minimum wage to $15 per hour in 2023; however, when inflation exceeds 7 percent, a provision in the law triggers the accelerated increase.
