Bill to Further Increase California’s Minimum Wage Approved by State Senate

Topics: New Laws & Legislation, Wage & Hour Issues

Yesterday, proposed legislation (SB 3—Leno) to increase California's minimum wage to $11/hour in 2016 and to $13/hour in 2017 was approved by California's Senate by a 23-15 vote (largely along party lines).  The bill now moves on to the state Assembly for consideration.  Last year, a similar minimum wage bill was also approved by the Senate, but failed in the Assembly.   It remains to be seen whether SB 3 will meet a similar fate in the Assembly this legislative session.  The current California minimum wage is $9/hour and is already set to increase to $10/hour in 2016.  To follow the progress of SB 3, click here.  We will continue to post significant developments concerning this bill.
