Effective July 1, 2017 – New Milpitas Minimum Wage

$11.00 Per Hour

On February 21, 2017, the Milpitas City Council adopted Ordinance No. 292 to establish a city-wide minimum wage.

Beginning on July 1, 2020, and each July 1st thereafter, the City will adjust the minimum wage based on the Bay Area Consumer Price Index as published by the U.S. Department of Labor.
