Large employers operating in Sacramento can expect to pay their workers at least $10.50 per hour in 2017 after the city council voted to raise the city’s minimum wage from the current $9 per hour. Employers with fewer than 100 employees will have until 2018 to pay the higher wage.

By 2020, workers in Sacramento will make $12.50 per hour.

Employers can receive a $2-an-hour credit by providing employee health benefits. For example, a large employer could pay a worker $8.50 per hour in 2017 if it provided a qualified health plan as well.

The minimum wage for large employers will increase to $11 in 2018, $11.75 in 2019, and $12.50 in 2020. The rates for smaller employers go into effect one year after the large-employer dates.
