Assembly Bill 10 seeks to raise minimum wage from $8.00 an hour to no less than $8.24 an hour on January 1, 2014. Although I certainly do not believe any adult could economically survive on California’s minimum wage, using an inflation calculator, it is interesting to note that the minimum wage of $3.35 an hour in 1983 is equivalent to $7.83 an hour in 2013 dollars. Thus, the minimum wage has risen.
In 1987 the minimum wage was still $3.35 an hour. By then that was worth $6.87 an hour in 2013 dollars.
