California’s Minimum Wage Is On The Ballot In November

  • Proposition Details: Proposition 32 aims to raise California's minimum wage to $18 per hour, with larger employers reaching this rate by January 1, 2025, and smaller employers by January 1, 2026.

  • Gradual Increase: The minimum wage for larger employers would increase to $17 in 2024 and $18 in 2025, while smaller employers would see a rise to $16 in 2024, $17 in 2025, and $18 in 2026.

  • Future Adjustments: Starting in 2027, minimum wage increases will be tied to the U.S. Consumer Price Index (CPI-W), with the Governor having the power to suspend increases during economic downturns.
