Mexico Raises Minimum Wage Starting Jan 1 

The Mexican Government has raised its daily minimum wage by 16.2 per cent effective January 1 from 88.36 pesos to 102.68 pesos. Mexicans working in the northern border will, however, see their salaries double as their minimum wage will be 176.72 pesos per day. The minimum monthly wage of $102 a month is still less than the Latin American average. 
Workers in Mexico work longer hours than those in any other 
country but earn some of the lowest salaries. 

Minimum wage goes up in California on Jan. 1, 2019 

California's minimum wage is going up by a buck to $12 an hour for companies with more than 25 employees. Most Bay Area cities already have higher minimum wages.

On Jan. 1, San Jose, San Mateo, and several other cities will boost their minimum to $15, and in Mountain View, it will increase to $15.65.

This increase will be delayed one year for companies with 25 employees or less.

In 2016, Gov. Jerry Brown signed a law that would gradually increase the state's minimum wage to $15 an hour by 2022. The law went into effect Jan. 1, 2017.
