Minimum wage goes up in California on Jan. 1, 2019

Bay Area

California’s minimum wage is going up by a buck to $12 an hour for companies with more than 25 employees.

Most Bay Area cities already have higher minimum wages.

On Jan. 1, San Jose, San Mateo, and several other cities will boost their minimum to $15, and in Mountain View, it will increase to $15.65.

This increase will be delayed one year for companies with 25 employees or less.

In 2016, Gov. Jerry Brown signed a law that would gradually increase the state’s minimum wage to $15 an hour by 2022. The law went into effect Jan. 1, 2017.
