California’s new $20 minimum wage: what you need to know

Existing minimum wage in California stands at $15.50 per hour

California has passed a law that will raise the minimum wage for fast food workers to $20 per hour starting on April 1 of the next year.

This new regulation is a clear recognition by the state’s Democratic leadership that a substantial portion of fast food workers serve as primary breadwinners for low-income households.

With the implementation of this law, fast food employees in California will enjoy the highest guaranteed base salary in the industry, surpassing all other states in the nation.

The existing minimum wage in California for all other occupations stands at $15.50 per hour, already one of the highest in the United States.


Governor Gavin Newsom, a Democrat, enthusiastically signed the legislation during an event held in Los Angeles, where he was joined by a jubilant crowd of workers and labor leaders.

Governor Newsom strongly countered the prevailing notion that fast food positions are primarily intended for teenagers seeking their first work experience.

“That notion reflects an idealized vision of a bygone era,” remarked Newsom. “We now have an opportunity to recognize and reward the invaluable contributions and sacrifices made by these workers while simultaneously providing stability to this vital industry.”
