Minimum Wage Fact SheetMinimum Wage Assessment 

On March 28, Governor Brown and California Legislative leaders announced a historic proposal to increase the California minimum wage to $15 per hour by 2022. In anticipation of an initiative raising the minimum wage slated for the Fall 2016 ballot, the Center for Business and Policy Research has been working on an assessment of the minimum wage increase on the Northern California Megaregion, and is releasing some preliminary results in response to today's news. The Fact Sheet can be found here. 

You can find our white paper here which details the methodology and results of the Fact Sheet on the minimum wage effect.
