Los Angeles County get a mandated minimum wage hike starting July 1 

The minimum wage rises to $ 15.96 an hour for small businesses with 25 employees or fewer 

The pay rate applies to all employees working two hours a week or more, regardless of their immigration or work status

Going forward, small and large businesses in Los Angeles County will have the same minimum wage rate 

The director of the DCB, Rafael Carbajal, says in a video statement that “businesses should be paying at least $15.96 an hour.”
