  Original Published: 9/26/2013 California is raising its minimum wage to one of the highest rates in the nation. Governor Jerry Brown signed a bill Wednesday that will gradually hike the state minimum wage over the next three years to $10 an hour, one of the highest in the country. At a ceremony in Los Angeles, supporters touted the measure's economic benefits. State Republican lawmakers opposed the increase, saying it will ratchet up costs for businesses, encouraging them to cut jobs. Federal law sets a minimum wage of $7.25 an hour. California is among 19 states and the District of Columbia with laws that set a higher state minimum wage.
