MINIMUM WAGE GOES UP ANOTHER DOLLAR AN HOUR STARTING TOMORROW

MINIMUM WAGE GOES UP ANOTHER DOLLAR AN HOUR STARTING TOMORROW

California’s low-end workers will all see bumps in their next paychecks as the first increase in the state’s minimum wage in six years takes effect tomorrow. The increase, to $9 per hour from $8 per hour, officially becomes the state standard Tuesday. It will go to $10 per hour Jan. 1, 2016. The law adopting the increase in minimum wage was initiated late in 2012 by Assemblyman Luis Alejo, a Salinas-area Democrat. It went through the legislative process, passing through committee and full Assembly and Senate votes almost completely along party lines before being signed into law by Gov. Jerry Brown in September.
