This month, higher minimum salaries take place in some Californian towns.
California’s minimum wage was raised on January 1, 2023, making it $15.50 an hour for all businesses, no matter the number of employees, based on the Department of Labor Relations (DIR). Although certain towns and counties have regulations that enable a bigger rise than the state’s minimum salary, this payout applies to the whole state of California.
Such towns have to offer the greatest minimum wage because “the employee has to comply with the most rigid standard; that is, the standard that is most favorable for the worker.”
The following Southern California towns will see a hike in the minimum wage on July 1.
City of Los Angeles: $16.78 is the new minimum salary.
Los Angeles County: The rural portion of Los Angeles County’s minimum salary will increase to $16.90 an hour.
The minimum wage in West Hollywood has increased to $19.08.
Pasadena: On July 1, 2023, the minimum salary for all companies, no matter their size, will increase to $16.93 hourly.
Malibu: Since July 1, 2023, the City’s minimum wage will be $16.90, which involves a 5.9% cost of living adjustment.
