If you live in California, the minimum statewide wage is $10.00 per hour for employers with 25 employees or fewer and $10.50 for employers with 26 or more employees. This rate overrides the federal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour.
In addition, some cities and counties have higher minimum wages. In Berkeley and San Francisco, for example, the minimum wage is $15 per hour, in Los Angeles and Oakland, $13.25.
These wages are the absolute minimum that an employee must be paid. It cannot be waived in any agreement between an employer and an employee.
Should your employer fail to pay you the minimum wage for any reason, you are within your rights to sue him/her. KJT Law Group is here to help you.
