Q: Hello. I work in the state of California and I'm getting 10.50 hr isnt minimum wage 11.00 in california. What to do?

I asked for a raise in the beginning of the year I only got $0.50 but I read online that if you have more than 26 employees working for you you need to pay them the minimum of $11 an hour. So my question is how much is a minimum wage in the state of California.
