When you think of minimum wage jobs, you probably come up with fast food servers, retail clerks or cashiers or waiters.

Gov. Jerry Brown has signed a bill that will increase California's minimum wage to $10 an hour within three years.

The legislation signed Wednesday will raise the current minimum of $8 an hour to $9 on July 1, 2014, and then to $10 on Jan. 1, 2016.

It's the first increase in California's minimum wage in six years.

Brown has called the bill an overdue piece of legislation that will help working-class families.
