Democratic Supermajority in California Legislature Moving Quickly to Significantly Raise California Minimum Wage

Topics: New Laws & Legislation, Wage & Hour Issues

Yesterday, on the first day of this year’s California Legislative session, Assemblymember Luis Alejo introduced a bill that would significantly raise California’s minimum wage starting in 2014.  If enacted in its current form, the California minimum wage would go to $8.25 in 2014, $8.75 in 2015 and $9.25 in 2016.  Starting in 2017, the minimum wage would be automatically adjusted based on inflation indexes.  For a complete copy of the bill, you can click here.  With the Democrats holding supermajority status in the Assembly and State Senate, we expect many pro-employee bills to be introduced in the coming months.  We will track them for you throughout the Legislative session.
