The minimum wage has gone up in Los Angeles County. Business owners with 26 or more employees in Los Angeles, Pasadena, Santa Monica, and the unincorporated parts of L.A. County are now required to pay their employees $12 an hour (up from $10.50).

Businesses with 25 or fewer employees have to pay $10.50 (up from $10 an hour).

It's just the beginning of minimum wage fever throughout California. The state's minimum wage will rise to $11 an hour in January and will steadily increase each year till it hits $15 an hour in 2022.

Host Larry Mantle takes your calls on your thoughts on the impact of the new minimum wage. How is this going to affect those looking for entry-level positions? If you are a business owner, how have you prepared for the new minimum wage at $12 an hour?
