Several cities in California made the list thanks to high costs of living. In fact, only one of the top 10 cities is outside the Golden State.

If you’re wondering what cities were the kindest to the wallets of their employees this year, read on to find out the top 10 cities where minimum wage workers received the biggest pay raises in 2019.
