I have a few questions regarding minimum wage law. Please help.

1) How much is the minimum wage for the State of California?

2) How much is the minimum wage for the cities of San Francisco, Oakland, Stockton, and Modesto (separately)?

3) How much is the federal minimum wage (now and when they plan to raise it again in 1 or 2 years)?

Ok, now let's say that a private business decides to hire a new employee and pay them minimum wage. Which minimum wage law would that business follow to stay legal (Federal, state, or city)? Would it depend on the state that the business resides in?

Thank you for your help,

G'z One

You can look all of this up quite easily yourself. Minimum wage laws (and other tax laws) are always based on the business location. You must abide by the federal, state, *and* city laws. (States can set minimum wages that are higher, but not lower, than the federal rate; cities can have minimums that are higher, but not lower, than state.) So in San Francisco, for instance, you must pay at least $9.79 an hour right now. If a city doesn't have a minimum wage law, then you go by the state minimum, which is $8 an hour in California right now. In other cities and states your mileage may vary, but this information is almost always prominently posted on the relevant municipal websites.

You will need to check specific cities because no two are the same.

There can be one minimum wage for hourly and no benefits and another with benefits and yet another for ag jobs... etc...

Even little city of San Leandro has wage ordinances.
