Effective July 1, 2018, employers who are subject to the Milpitas business license requirement or maintain a business facility in Milpitas must pay their employees a new minimum wage rate of $13.50 per hour. This increase comes just 6 months after the prior increase to $12.00 on January 1, 2018.

Details of the Milpitas Minimum Wage Ordinance

The Milpitas City Council adopted a Minimum Wage Ordinance in February of 2017. Starting with an increase to $11.00 on July 1, 2017, the city’s minimum wage has been on a path to $15.00, which will occur on July 1, 2019. On July 1, 2020, and each year thereafter, the minimum wage will be adjusted based on the Bay Area Consumer Price Index.
