About the Living Wage Act

The Living Wage Act of 2022 would increase California’s minimum wage $1.00 per year, starting on January 1, 2023, until it reaches $18.00 per hour by 2025 for businesses with 26 or more employees. Businesses with 25 or fewer employees would reach $18.00 per hour by 2026. Thereafter, the minimum wage would adjust annually with the cost of living.
