Minimum Wage Hike?

Employees and business owners alike will be following the progress of a measure introduced by Mayor Ed Lee and 10 members of the Board of Supervisors that would place on the November ballot a vote to raise the city’s minimum wage to $15 an hour by July 1, 2018. The San Francisco Chamber of Commerce, the Coalition for a Fair Economy, and a number of organized labor groups joined the mayor in the announcement, indicating possible broad support for the measure.

If enacted, the measure would raise the hourly minimum wage in increments: to $11 on Jan. 1, 2015; $12.25 by May 1, 2015; $13 by July 1, 2016; $14 by July 1, 2017; and $15 by July 1, 2018.
