California’s minimum wage is set to go up again in January, hitting a major milestone sought by labor advocates and activists.

Beginning Jan. 1, 2022, California’s minimum wage will increase to $15 an hour for employers with 26 or more employees. For employers with 25 or fewer employees, the minimum wage rises to $14.

West Hollywood has the highest minimum wage in the country: $17.64 an hour for hotel workers, according to payroll experts Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S. Non-hotel workers have a minimum wage of $15.50 an hour in West Hollywood, though that amount is set to increase to $16.50 an hour in July 2022.
