California to raise minimum wage to $10 an hour by 2016
California has become the first state in the nation to commit to raising the minimum wage to $10 per hour, although the increase will take place gradually over three years under a bill signed into law by Democratic Governor Jerry Brown on Wednesday.
The law raises minimum pay in the most populous state from its current rate of $8 per hour to $9 by July 2014 and $10 by January 2016.
The state with the highest minimum wage currently is Washington, where employers must pay at least $9.19 per hour.
