    OFFICIAL NOTICE
    California Minimum Wage
    MW-2001
    Minimum Wage - Every employer shall pay to each employee wages not less than the following:

    SUMMARY OF ACTIONS:
    TAKE NOTICE that on October 23, 2000, the Industrial Welfare Commission (IWC), having proceeded according to its authority in the Labor Code and Constitution of California, Article 14, 1, amended Sections 1,2,3, and 5 of the General Minimum Wage Order, MW-98. Section 4, Separability, has not been changed. The IWC adopted increases to the minimum wage and to meals and lodging credits in this general minimum wage order and in all of the IWCs industry and occupation orders. The IWC also repealed and/or amended the following non-statutory full and partial exemptions from the minimum wage for certain employees that are contained in this order as well as in its industry and occupation orders: student nurses, professional actors, full-time carnival ride operators, employees of the State or local governments and any political subdivision thereof, personal attendants in private homes except for persons under the age of eighteen who are employee as baby sitters for a minor child of the employer in the employers home, and minors paid not less than 85% of the minimum wage rounded to the nearest nickel. The present partial exemption for learners was amended to include minors. The IWC took these actions after holding investigative public hearings as required by Labor Code 1178, considered the report of the Wage Board on the minimum wage selected pursuant to Labor Code 1178.5, and subsequently holding public hearings according to the requirements of Labor Code 1181. This summary must be made available to employees in accordance with the IWCs wage orders.
    1. APPLICABILITY

The IWC has eliminated other exemptions from the minimum wage previously contained in this Order and in sections of the IWCs industry and occupation orders. (See Section 5, Amended Provisions, below.) Exceptions and modifications provided by statute or in Section 1, Applicability, and in other sections of the IWCs industry and occupation orders may be used where any such provisions are enforceable and applicable to the employer.
