Minimum Wage Raised in Malibu

Malibu City Hall

The City of Malibu has raised its minimum wage to $10.50 as of July 1, 2016. 

On March 28, 2016, the city council voted to raise the minimum wage in increments each year so that by 2020, the minimum wage will be $15. 

Malibu employees will be earning $15 two years before California’s mandate will be put in place for the $15 minimum wage increase statewide. 

In order for smaller businesses to adjust, there will be a one-year delay for businesses with 25 or fewer employees to raise their wages. 

Mayor Lou La Monte said in a statement to The Malibu Times that he wants “to ensure that workers are fairly treated and compensated.” 

He hopes to “help businesses attract the best employees they can.”
