Minimum Wage to Increase January 2023

On January 1, 2023, the state-wide California minimum wage will rise to $15.50 per hour for all employer sizes because a state provision regarding inflation was triggered.

South Pasadena follows the California minimum wage guidelines, currently set at $14 an hour for employers with 25 employees or fewer, and $15 an hour for employers with 26 or more employees. South Pasadena employers with fewer than 26 employees were originally expected to be required to raise the minimum wage to $15 starting January 1, 2023 but under the newly triggered provision, the governor’s office said that the $15.50 minimum wage will be required for all workers.
