 |  By: Jim Dickrell

Minimum wages are set to go up in California January 1, notes Katelyn Lewis, a Western United Dairymen field representative.


For operations with 26 or more employees, the minimum wage employers must pay is $12 per hour. Overtime rules will also apply, with overtime required when employees work more than 9 ½ hours per day or more than 55 hours per week.


For operations with 25 or fewer employees, the minimum wage is $11 per hour. Overtime rules for these operations don’t take effect until 2020, says Lewis.
