California Minimum Wage Projected to Increase to $15.50

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.
