Starting New Year's Day, the minimum wage in Santa Clara is going up, city officials said Monday.
Companies that must pay the business license tax or have a facility in Santa Clara must pay each employee who works at least two hours a week in the city at least $15.65 an hour. The current rate is $15.40 per hour.
City officials said the minimum wage is adjusted each year based on the region's consumer price index, which measures inflation.
