The New Year brings new beginnings, and, for many, it will also bring higher wages.

The minimum wage is going up by $0.50 cents in California starting January 1, 2018.

A Pew Research Center study estimates about 30% of all hourly workers make around minimum wage, which, in California, just got a little bit higher.

Now, the minimum wage for employers with 25 or fewer employees is $10.50 an hour, while the minimum for employers with 26 or more employees is $11.00 per hour.

The increase is all part of a bigger plan, to increase the minimum wage across the board to $15.00 an hour by 2023.
