On November 4, 2021, the West Hollywood City Council approved the highest minimum wage in the nation. In a unanimous vote early Thursday morning, the city council unanimously approved a $17.64 minimum wage. The measure will take effect on January 1, 2022 for all hotel workers and on July 1, 2022 for all other workers. It sets the minimum wage for hotel workers at the same level as in the two cities of Santa Monica and Los Angeles. The measure also includes 96 hours of paid sick, vacation, and personal leave.


The minimum wage rate will be raised in phases depending on the size of the business.


For employers with 50 or more employees, the rate will rise to:


$15.50/hr. on Jan. 1, 2022


$16.50/hr. on July 1, 2022


$17.50/hr. on Jan 1, 2023


$17.64/hr. on July 1, 2023


Employers with fewer than 50 employees, the rate will rise to:


$15/hr. on Jan. 1, 2022


$16/hr. on July 1, 2022


$17/hr. on Jan 1, 2023


$17.64/hr. on July 1, 2023
