Minimum Wage Increase in 2022

Minimum Wage: In accordance with the timeline established by SB 3 (Leno), signed in 2016 by California’s previous Governor Jerry Brown, the state’s minimum wage will increase by one dollar until it reaches $15.00/hr for all employees in 2023. At that point, “the rate will be adjusted annually for inflation based on the national consumer price index for urban wage earners and clerical workers (CPI-W).” This year, the new minimum wage rates are as follows:

  • For employers with 25 employees or less, minimum wage will go up to $14.00/hr.
  • For employers with 26 employees or more, minimum wage will go up to $15.00/hr.
